Stand for Children Indiana Executive Director Justin Ohlemiller issued the following statement regarding the sudden death of radio legend Amos Brown:

“I was shocked and deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Amos Brown. Every day for so many years, Amos was a strong voice for thousands across our city. He was an unshakable advocate for the needs of everyday people, and a consistent champion for justice and equity. For those being treated unfairly, Amos made a career out of amplifying their issues and concerns -- speaking out and speaking up to ensure his fellow citizens were heard by our city's leaders. 

“Amos was a believer in the power of grassroots communities, knowing that change is more sustainable and powerful when it’s driven from the bottom-up. Neighborhoods grow stronger when more people have a stake in shaping them, and that's a lesson Amos consistently taught us in his words and with his deeds.

“Simply put, Indianapolis is a better city because of the voice and leadership of Amos Brown. He will be missed.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to his entire family.”
