About Effective Altruism Anywhere

What do we do?

EA Anywhere is a community for people interested in effective altruism to connect, regardless of geographic location. We created the group to allow people who do not live near an active effective altruism group, or are otherwise not able to attend local group meetups, to connect with the effective altruism community and support each other with their goal of having a positive impact on the world.

Essentially, we are a "local group" for people who don't live near local groups and we want to make sure that every person interested in effective altruism has the opportunity to engage with the effective altruism community, no matter where they are.
