Community spotlight:

Here is a link to the article about Dylan Mathews' experience that Caleb mentioned. It notes that there are more than 100,000 people on the kidney waitlist who will most likely die in the next five years if they didn’t get one. 
Do you know someone in our community that should be in the spotlight? Maybe you have just published a book, gotten a new job, or started a new charity or project? If you have an idea for a future spotlight please email us to let us know!

EA DC Book Club: This month we will be reading the first half (up to page 153) of Strangers Drowning: Impossible Idealism, Drastic Choices, and the Urge to Help by Larissa MacFarquhar. We'd be excited to provide you with a copy of the book so please reach out to with your name and address if you'd like us to send you one! We'll send out discussion questions a week before the meeting. This podcast interview with the author is an especially good introduction to her work.

EA DC Article Reading Group: Meets monthly, covering a different topic area of interest each month. This month the topic is  politics and we’re meeting on Sept. 22. Join the email list and feel free to drop in for any discussion that would interest you, or feel free to simply enjoy the readings on your own. Email to be added!
