Expecto Equality: Support the Harry Potter Alliance This Fall
For 14 years, the Harry Potter Alliance has been turning Potter fans into activists dedicated to creating a more magical future. Most recently, the organization has advocated for children’s literacy with its tenth annual book drive and raised funds and awareness through the Happy Birthday Harry 5K virtual running race.
This fall, the HPA has launched its Expecto Equality fundraiser, which will allow the nonprofit to continue its work training young activists, supporting immigrants, and fighting against climate change. Funds raised this fall will go toward the creation of specialized resources and toolkits, supporting free training through Wizard Activist School, and in-person live training events.
For 14 years, the HPA has proven the power of story to inspire and drive change. Join us as we show up for immigrants, fight for the climate, engage voters, and more. Support our #ExpectoEquality fundraiser!https://t.co/klF0f2OnSU ❤️ ⚡️ pic.twitter.com/Ejw1CO9qS6

The HPA’s Managing Director, Katie Bowers, reminded Potter fans that it’s through their donations and participation in local HPA chapters that the magical work of the nonprofit can continue:
Fundraisers like Expecto Equality support staff time, resource development, and our web and conference presences – and that allows us to do huge things! Donating to the HPA through Expecto Equality means you believe in a more just and magical future. This fall, in addition to supporting dozens of actions to show up for immigrants and to fight for the climate, we are on track to train over 1,000 young activists this year! That’s a thousand new heroes, hitting the ground running and working for change in their communities.
To help the HPA reach its goal of $20,000 by October 31, a number of perks have been made available, including signed books, enamel pins, T-shirts, wizard rock merchandise, and event opportunities. Head to the Expecto Equality Indiegogo page to view all the perks on offer and to make a donation to support the organization’s future campaigns.
