It's not what you think.
The Harry Potter Alliance is an organization dedicated to making activism accessible by channeling the power of the stories we love to create tools for real-world change. Their campaigns have resulted in 250,000 book donations, 20,000 supporters for Net Neutrality, and $123,000 for supplies in Haiti. Their current project connects the message of The Hunger Games books and films to address real-world inequality.
The project has opened up a discussion about mental illness and income inequality.
Fiction frequently mirrors life, but we don't often use it as a tool to find solutions to the problems we're facing. By asking people what their Hunger Games reality is, the HPA is encouraging everyone with a personal connection to the books (the entire world) to join a conversation. Because the truth is that income inequality is increasing, as is the cost of education and healthcare, and those problems aren't going to be solved on their own.
