About Us

We're a group of students at Penn trying to affect critically positive change. We think that the best way to do this is through the lens of effective altruism: a framework that advocates for the use of careful reasoning to determine the most effective ways to improve the world.

This means we're:

  • Concerned with counterfactual impact: how the world looks different because we exist.

  • Cause agnostic: we want to affect the most positive change that we can, regardless of what problem we aim to solve to do this.

  • Egalitarian: caring of all people equally regardless of their race, ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexuality, etc. We also care about people regardless of where they live in the world, when they might exist, and the wellbeing of all animals.

  • Morally straight: we don't cut corners to achieve social impact.
