People have been trying to start up a Brandeis chapter of the Harry Potter Alliance for a while now.
Here is an e-mail from Adam Ossip regarding the newest incarnation of this movement and how you can get involved!
I would like to announce the formation of a new Brandeis club, the Brandeis Chapter of the Harry Potter Alliance.
The Harry Potter Alliance is a national organization formed by Andrew Slack, a Brandeis alum. It's a social justice group that seeks to improve the world inspired by the lessons of love and friendship learned from the Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling. Just last February, they raised $125,000 to help those hurt by the earthquake in Haiti.
We hope to soon add our efforts to the good done by this group. And we would love to have your help as well. If you would like to join our listserv, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
