Effective Altruism is about applying evidence and reason to the goal of making the world a better place for all. If you've ever wondered how to make the most of your resources in a world with so much need, then this group is for you!
This is currently mainly a discussion group, although we have tried other formats for meetups and might again in the future. Some of the topics that have come up are global poverty and health, farm animal welfare, US policy, and global catastrophic risk from things like climate change and artificial intelligence. If you'd like to help out with organizing or offer specific suggestions, please feel free to message me here on meetup or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
