We’re going to cry too! Someone get us a dementor because we could produce the best patronus with our joy for Edmonton’s accomplishment!
But don’t think competition is futile, other chapters! Krum may have gotten the snitch, but Ireland still won. You have two weeks left to donate more books than Edmonton! Just don’t forget to record your points in the Chapter’s Cup. (Hint: That’s separate from the House Cup)
Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval is expected to sign into law a bill that would add gender identity and expression as protected classes under the state’s hate crimes law.
The state assembly passed the legislation 30-11 on Tuesday, and the senate passed it nearly unanimously last month.
We’ve been talking about marriage equality a lot lately, but the states are stepping up in all kinds of ways for gender and sexual equality. Ten points to Gryffindor, Nevada!
You guys. The bill that is inclusive and protective of people that are often viewed as outcasts should obviously mean ten points to Hufflepuff.
Alright one vote for Hufflepuff. We’re officially taking suggestions for which house Nevada and all the other US states (and any countries) would be in.
I would say any state that votes for a bill like this is in the House of Awesome. because the Sorting Hat told us that we shouldn’t be dividing ourselves in times of darkness. united we stand, divided we fall. collectively, Hogwarts is the House of Awesome. therefore, states that unite everyone under equality are part of the House of Awesome.
100 points to the House of Awesome for a flawless answer.
Did you ever wish that Harry Potter was real? Well it kind of is.
Harry and his friends start a student activist group called Dumbledore’s Army when the adults and politicians of their world fail to address the concerns of the day. The Harry Potter Alliance is a Dumbledore’s Army for the real world.
Just as Dumbledore’s Army wakes the world up to Voldemort’s return, works for equal rights of house elves and werewolves, and empowers its members, we:
* Work with partner NGOs in alerting the world to the dangers of global warming, poverty, and genocide.
* Work with our partners for equal rights regardless of race, gender, and sexuality.
* Encourage our members to hone the magic of their creativity in endeavoring to make the world a better place.
