Despite billions of extra funding, small donors can still have a significant impact

Thanks for highlighting the potential of small donors to support political candidates and campaigns. In the US, if you expect to take the standard deduction on your taxes, you have a fantastic opportunity to leverage your voice in the democratic process.

Analysis of EA funding within Animal Welfare from 2019-2021

“There’s a relatively small amount of funding towards policy advocacy and legislative change, compared to what I expected, approximately 4.5% average across all three years.“

Interactive Graph of Climate Change Intervention Effects + Reflections

For those looking to advance climate solutions, I'll plug Citizens' Climate Lobby which advocates for a price on carbon in Congress. I love political advocacy because it can be done with zero cost (ie writing to/lobbying your elected officials), and is a powerful tool for collective action.
