News: Austin Music Office Needs Funding Badly

Austin Music People, one of Austin’s best and most active music activism organizations, has started a letter writing campaign to get better funding for the Austin Music Office. As AMP points out, music brings in nearly $2 billion in revenue for the city of Austin and is of course built into the city’s very identity as the “Live Music Capital of the World,” yet the Austin Music Office only receives¬†$47,000 a year in funding. As AMP Executive Director Jennifer Houlihan said on Facebook, that’s a little more than a fifth of what the city spends on the Zilker Park golf course each year and that’s unacceptable. AMP has made it extremely easy to voice your opinion on this matter with an easy to use automatic letter generator and we highly recommend you add your voice to the campaign.
