Hacking the Hunger Games: Harry Potter Alliance Launches Catching Fire Themed Economic Equality Campaign
Note: Slight Hunger Game’s spoilers in the video above and ahead.
Since its inception The Harry Potter Alliance has launched successful campaigns, told intricate policy stories and done a world of good in a world of Muggles. Now, in time for the release of Catching Fire the group is looking to The Hunger Games to elevate the issue of economic inequality and to galvanize young people on behalf of those most affected. I got a chance to talk to Andrew Slack, Co-founder and Executive Director of the Harry Potter Alliance about the campaign and will share some of his insights.
But first — some background:
The Harry Potter Alliance has built a reputation for being scrappy, creative and full of heart.
The group grounds complex policies and contemporary events in fictional references and beloved narratives and in fact looks to the world of Harry Potter- and the series’ creator J.K Rowling specifically, for guidance on how to change the world.
