Are you motivated to do something that makes the world a better place? Do you want to have the biggest impact you possibly can? We each have limited resources with which to affect the world. Figuring out how to invest these resources to accomplish the most good can be difficult, involving a lot of research, strategy, and math. Fortunately, we don't have to do it alone.
Effective Altruism is a growing movement of people looking to maximize their impact on the world. We take our moral obligations toward others seriously and look for ways to do good for others that wouldn't otherwise be done. Whether you consider yourself a dedicated effective altruist, are curious about the economic and philosophical ideas behind the movement, or just want to do a little more good on the margins, we invite you to join us!
If you'd like to read about some of the ideas behind Effective Altruism, a good place to start is the "Introduction" page on the Effective Altruism Forum website.
I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
