The Harry Potter Alliance has launched a Hunger Games-themed social justice campaign called “Odds In Our Favor.”
This nonprofit organization has created a video called “The Hunger Games Are Real.” Throughout the video (embedded above), the narrator refers to events which take place in Suzanne Collins’ young adult trilogy and shares statistics concerning poverty, hunger, and income equality within the United States. What do you think?
In a L.A. Times op-ed, Harry Potter Alliance executive director Andrew Slack writes: “Perhaps Lionsgate will embrace the simple but radical message of its blockbuster films: No one should have to go hungry in a nation of plenty. After all, fantasy is not an escape from our world but an invitation to go deeper into it. And we will keep going deeper until the odds are in everyone’s favor.” (via Upworthy)
