Effective Altruism NYC

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 the introductory links on the Effective Altruism Forum.
