What we're about

Please visit our Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/383468451835653/

We use evidence and reason to ask "Where can a small set of individuals make the biggest difference?" We’re entrepreneurs and economists. CEOs and scientists. Students and philanthropists. And if you're ready to rethink social impact, you're ready to join us.

Our meetings are usually held in the Community Room at el Mercado La Paloma, 3655 S Grand Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90007. It's a shopping and food court, very close to USC. It includes the awesome AZLA Vegan Ethiopian, as well as Mexican, Thai, and American Cuisine restaurants.
There are two categories of events for Effective Altruism Los Angeles.
"EA Social" events offer a chance for Los Angeles Effective Altruists to get to know each other and have fun exploring activities around the Southland. These are lighter on philosophy and great for first time and return attendees.

"EA InDepth" events are organized around exploring and discussing ideas central to Effective Altruism. These are also great for first time and return attendees looking for a more substantive experience.

Current State of Effective Altruism

USC, Taper Hall

Hey everyone, we’re excited to announce our first in-person event of 2021! Here's the info:

At this event, we will be presenting a snapshot of the current state of the effective altruism community. What does effective altruism mean? What cause areas are most popular, and what promising new interventions are being tested? How are the community's resources being allocated? Most importantly, how can we get involved?

Join us IN-PERSON for an event covering these questions, and we’ll talk about how we can do good better!
