Dumbledore's Army at RIT is a university chapter of a non-profit organization known as the Harry Potter Alliance (www.thehpalliance.org). The Harry Potter Alliance uses parallels from the books to promote charity and social activism within the Harry Potter fandom community. Promoting literacy, raising awareness of Darfur, and sending aid to disaster-struck places like Haiti are among the things the Harry Potter Alliance takes part in. At RIT, we'll do fundraisers for charity and run book drives, but more importantly we'll build a community dedicated to helping others and sharing our love/appreciation/etc. for the Harry Potter series. If you'd like to learn more, we meet in the Campus Center Reading Room on Wednesdays of odd weeks from 8-10 PM.
