Nineteen radio stations across Indianapolis came together on July 7 to promote and produce "Indy United on the Circle," a rally in downtown Indianapolis to support law enforcement and take a stand against violence. The event was in response to a Fourth of July holiday weekend mass shooting, in which seven people were shot on a main street in one of the city’s most popular nightlife districts and a local police officer was killed. Seven radio groups – Emmis, Entercom, Clear Channel, Radio One, Cumulus, Continental and Sarkes Tarzian – promoted the event for a week leading up to the rally. "Indy United" included speeches from business leaders, local elected officials and five members of the Indianapolis clergy. The event was capped off by a moving performance by the Indianapolis Children’s Choir.
