We Are Book Eight!NEW LOGO 2021 WITH HPA

PDXpelliarmus is the Portland Chapter of Fandom Forward (formerly known as The Harry Potter Alliance), an international nonprofit on a mission to fight against the real world Dark Arts using the most powerful weapon we have, LOVE!

One of more than 70 HPA chapters spread around the globe, PDXpelliarmus brings together fans of all ages based in or near the Portland area.  We harness the enthusiasm and inspiration of the Harry Potter fandom to achieve great things for our community.  Teaming up with local businesses and nonprofits, we organize book and school supply drives, special events, and fundraisers.  We encourage activism and civic engagement, and foster a community of magical people who want to use their bravery, determination, creativity, and ambition to make the world a better place.

What does “We Are Book Eight” mean?  It means that we continue the story of Harry Potter through our creative works, though our friendships, and through our activism.  Hate has no place in our story.
