"Effective Altruism NYC: the local incarnation of a global movement embraced by people committed to benefiting others in the most efficient way possible." -Wall Street Journal
Effective altruism is about recognizing the importance of using our lives
to do the most good we can and looking for ways to help others that are
high-impact and well-supported by evidence. This approach may sound obvious,
but careful consideration of the impact of different strategies for doing
good can lead to some surprising, and even controversial, conclusions.
