Dumbledore’s Army of New Paltz is SUNY New Paltz’s chapter of the Harry Potter Alliance. We are dedicated to decreasing “world suck,” while upholding the values the Harry Potter series teaches. We work on campaigns, both with and without the HPA, in an effort to fight real-world Dark Arts.


This year Dumbledore's Army will be raising money to support the charity Hudson Valley LGBTQ+ Community Center! 

Here is the Mission of the organisation taken from their website: 

As a safe, supportive environment, the Hudson Valley LGBTQ Community Center provides services, professional resources, and programs that unite the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer/questioning community across lines of age, race, gender, and economics. Our purpose is to strengthen, support, and celebrate LGBTQ individuals, families, and groups in their efforts to achieve their fullest potential.

The center strives for positive social change through advocacy, community education, cultural awareness, and wellness programs that assist in the creation, development, and growth of LGBTQ-affirming organizations, institutions, and culture within the community at large.

Here is a link to the website for more information: http://lgbtqcenter.org/

We will also be participating in Make a Difference Day and Relay for Life. Dumbledore's Army of New Paltz has been a participant in these events for Seven years running!
