From the Mexican-American Music Alliance (MAMA) and Funding Request the Latin Music Coalition Austin (LMCA) To the Austin Music Commission August 5, 2020 Summary • The MAMA and LMCA requests that the Austin Music Commission consider funding from the Live Music Fund for Latino music initiatives that fit within the guidelines of Texas State Statue governing HOT funds • The MAMA/LMCA requests a Latino Music fund in the amount of $1.5 million be established that addresses city music tourism needs while at the same time addresses the funding disparity that exists to support Mexican-American and Latino musicians, community venues, and music industry development • The MAMA/LMCA also requests that $2 million of the $12 million bond funds approved in 2018 for creative spaces be allocated to the Emma S.

As the population grows more diverse and people of color become the majority, equity—fair and just inclusion—has become an urgent economic imperative. By 2042, racial minority groups will become the majority of the US population, but the City of Austin is already a Majority-Minority city. The City of Austin’s demographer estimates that the City’s White population dropped below 50% sometime during 2005. The estimated White share of the population is at 45%; the Black …
