Andrew Slack

The Harry Potter Alliance
Executive Director
Andrew Slack grew disenchanted when he discovered that he could draw 1,000 students with a comedy show while a human rights group on the same campus would be lucky to get 5. The Harry Potter Alliance (HPA) was his first step in harnessing the energy of popular culture toward civic engagement and social activism. Under Andrew’s leadership, the HPA has inspired a network of over 1 million fans and 130 chapters. GOOD Magazine recently named him one of the 100 people shaping innovative social justice ideas in the world. Andrew has served as keynote speaker at the Nobel Peace Prize Forum and was awarded the Nathan Cummings Foundation Fellowship.
