What we're about

Effective altruism is about using evidence and reason to figure out how to benefit others as much as possible, and taking action on that basis.

This is a group for discussing, working on, and growing effective altruism in and around Chicago. We organize events such as a speaker series, discussion groups, intro workshops, socials, and a book club.

Our primary forms of digital communication are our Facebook group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/eachicago/) and our mailing list (https://forms.gle/S3iKGBwwhaNfWLcXA). We try to also post events on Meetup, but if Meetup appears inactive then you should check out these other channels as we're likely still having events.
