"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

What is effective altruism?

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. 

A great way to start learning about our perspective is to watch Peter Singer's TED talk. If it piques your interest, have a look through this introduction to effective altruism.
