Discussion article for the meetup : San Francisco: Effective Altruism

WHEN: 27 June 2013 07:00:00PM (-0700)

WHERE: 170 Saint Germain Ave, San Francisco

Our first salon, about Effective Altruism groups in Oxford.

The current effective altruist movements seem to be spread between two very specific places. Here in the Bay Area we have Givewell, CFAR, MIRI, Leverage Research, and others. But across the Atlantic, in Oxford, there exist organizations such as 80,000 hours, the Life You Can Save, the Future of Humanity Institute, and several other fascinating groups.

Holly Morgan the Managing Director of The Life You Can Save and is also involved in several other Effective Altruist groups. She's here in San Francisco for a very limited time only, and will be discussing the ins and outs of English groups we should care about.

This will be in a lecture/salon format, with a talk for approximately 40 minutes, followed by some Q/A, followed by friendly discussions.

Come at 7pm, talk will start at 7:20pm.
