Tune in to this live Facebook chat today about how music and culture can affect social change

The proceeds from this weekend's Made in America music festival will benefit the local chapters of the United Way and the American Civil Liberties Union. Watch staffers from both nonprofits chat about it with recording artists and Stimulus' Tiffanie Stanard.

This is a guest post by Tiffanie Stanard.
This Labor Day weekend, Made in America music festival returns to the Ben Franklin Parkway, along with a hundred thousand-plus fans and hip hop stars such as Jay-Z and J. Cole.

The proceeds from this festival will benefit Philadelphia communities via United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey and the American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania (ACLU).

Stimulus, a local tech startup that helps social enterprises and nonprofits access the capital they need to thrive, is hosting a Facebook live panel event to discuss how music and culture can contribute to the progress we need in early education and criminal justice reform. The broadcasted panel, “In Progress We Trust,” will feature speakers from both benefitting nonprofits as well as two Philly-based recording artists.

Why is Stimulus organizing this event? Stimulus provides a platform to connect communities to resources and supply resource-providers with the tools to deepen community impact. Stimulus adds value by not only providing technology but content on impact, partnerships and simplifying how to obtain resources needed to grow.

Attendees can ask questions and join the discussion on the Facebook pages of the below event partners, including Generocity’s.

  • Tiffanie Stanard, founder and CEO, Stimulus; media personality
  • Bill Cobb, deputy director, ACLU
  • Kevin Dow, SVP of impact and innovation, United Way
