AMA: Leah Edgerton, Executive Director of Animal Charity Evaluators

Note: Aaron Gertler, a Fo­rum mod­er­a­tor, is post­ing this with Leah’s ac­count. (That’s why the post is writ­ten in the third per­son.)

This is a Vir­tual EA Global AMA: sev­eral peo­ple will be post­ing AMAs on the Fo­rum, then record­ing their an­swers in videos that will be broad­cast at the Vir­tual EA Global event this week­end.

Leah will ei­ther re­spond in a video or with writ­ten an­swers. For now, I recom­mend try­ing to post ques­tions by 2:00 pm PDT on March 18th (Wed­nes­day), which is when Leah will record her video.
