Our Facebook page

Effective Altruism is about applying evidence and reason to the goal of making the world a better place for all sentient beings. If you've ever wondered how to make the most of your resources in a world with so much need, or maybe you're already on board with the movement, then this group is for you! 

This group is currently fairly new (started April 15th). We plan to make it a mix of discussion and action, ranging across multiple causes. Some of the topics that might come up are: global poverty and health, farm animal welfare, US policy, and causes that specifically impact the future like climate change and existential risk. 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
