Why Start An HPA Chapter?

  • You believe in the power of story to inspire social change.
  • You feel strongly about taking an active role in the improvement and empowerment of your local community.
  • You think about Harry Potter (and the Doctor, and Katniss Everdeen, and…) a little bit more than the average person. In fact, you see these fictional heroes as role models for action in the real world.
  • You also have a bunch of friends who feel the same way you do.

What Will You Gain?

Leadership Experience: Our COs have the opportunity to gain invaluable experience as leaders in a non-profit setting while playing an active role in real social change.

Training and Development: Our COs have access to an exclusive Harry Potter-themed training program from which they will emerge fully equipped to lead their communities. Additionally, we now offer Granger Leadership Academy, a semi-annual leadership conference that provides a variety of excellent fan activism workshops and presentations from fandom leaders like Melissa Anelli and Andrew Slack.

A Fun and Supportive Community: Leading or joining an HPA chapter means being part of something truly unique and special: a real-life Dumbledore’s Army that spans 25 countries, speaks over a dozen languages, shares a passion for multiple fandoms, and fights multiple forms of worldsuck.

What Will You Achieve?

Here are some examples of exceptional chapter accomplishments:

  • The Deluminators (Australia) collected 9,512 books for various charities in conjunction with our annual global book drive, Accio Books!
  • Edmonton Potterwatch (Canada) held a charitable Yule Ball that attracted over 450 attendees and raised $7,500 for Youth Empowerment and Support Services, an organization that provides support to at-risk youth in Edmonton.
  • St. Mungo’s (USA) held a Wage Disparity bake sale in their high school, sparking a school-wide discussion of gender inequality in the workplace.
  • London Loveiosa (United Kingdom) organized a book drive at Platform 9 3/4 in King’s Cross Station, collecting over 1,000 books and raising over 600 pounds for charity in a single weekend.
  • HPA Mexico City (Mexico) helped transfer over 300 dogs to a new and better dog shelter in conjunction with Adopciones San Cristóbal.
  • Harry Potter Alliance of Pasadena (USA) created the Harry Potter As a Tool for Social Change curriculum, a multi-week discussion series about connections between Harry Potter and social justice issues.
