Update: Sentience Politics has split into two organizations: Sentience Institute (research on effective animal advocacy) and Sentience Politics (political ballot initiatives in Switzerland). If you are interested in working with them, please refer to their websites.

We take an evidence-based approach to identifying and implementing highly effective strategies for reducing suffering. We are driven to eliminate the most suffering we can from the world, irrespective of who is experiencing it, and we advocate for a society in which the interests of all sentient beings are considered. While we are not actively seeking new employees at this time, we are always excited to receive unsolicited applications from exceptional candidates. Please also apply here if you are interested in volunteer or internship opportunities with our team.
