The Future of the Harry Potter Alliance
As the Harry Potter Alliance approaches it's five year anniversary, it has accomplished a lot as a Dumbledore's Army for the real world: protecting thousands of civilians in Darfur and Burma, donating over 50,000 books across the world, bringing people together to work for human rights and quality, and this year working with the whole fandom to raise over $123,000 that sent five cargo planes to Haiti (four of them named Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Dumbledore). So what happens now? What is the future of the Harry Potter Alliance through the Deathly Hallows movies and beyond? And how can you get involved? This inspirational talk by Harry Potter Alliance creator, co-founder, and Executive Director will lay out the future vision of this Dumbledore's Army for our world
