What are the Harry Potter Alliance and the Auror Brigade?
The Harry Potter Alliance is an international non-profit organization that takes an outside-the-box approach to activism by using parallels from the Harry Potter books to educate and mobilize people across the world towared working for social change. We work with volunteers of all ages who wish to make a difference. By translating some of the world's most pressing issues into the framework of Harry Potter, we hope to make activism easier to grasp and less intimidating.
The Auror Brigade is a community chapter of the HPA, and our aim is to create a safe space based on the shared experience of fandom. From that foundation we work to find ways to express our shared ideas and enthusiasm via the outlet of community involvement, service, and activism both locally through chapter projects and globally through the HPA's larger-scale campaigns.
