We are not a Hunger Games fan site. However, we always support the Harry Potter Alliance (HPA) when truths need to be told and fandoms need to move and rise together as one. That is the situation in the latest HPA campaign: "The Odds in Our Favor"
Today, the LA Times featured a piece by the co-founder of the HPA and MuggleNet's close friend, Andrew Slack, in which he stated:
If the books are supposed to function as a cautionary tale against the real class divide in the U.S., we need not look far for evidence. The future of Panem is upon us: More than 20 million Americans can't find full-time jobs, 22% of children live in poverty and middle-class wages have been largely stagnant since 1974. Meanwhile, corporate profits are at an all-time high.
But even though Lionsgate has dropped the ball, a coalition of fan activists is taking up the cause. Since 2005, the Harry Potter Alliance has mobilized the fans of many popular books, movies and TV shows to advocate for important causes that relate to the stories they love. We've sent five cargo planes to Haiti, built libraries across the world and funded the protection of thousands of civilians in Darfur and Burma. We've supported marriage equality and the Dream Act.
Watch this masterful video by HPA's great campaign master Lauren Bird, and join the campaign today!
