Our Mission

*To Promote Interest in Star Wars*While a growing number of people are experiencing a reawakening of their *StarWars* fandom, new generations are seeking ways to celebrate their passionfor George Lucas's modern mythology. The 501st Legion brings these fanstogether, reinforcing the enduring longevity of the* Star Wars* saga.

*To Facilitate the Use of Costumes*Some fans are content to collect action figures...other fans want to*be*action figures. Nothing professes your passion quite like buildingyour owndetailed costume replica of a classic *Star Wars* villain, and there'snothing quite like the feeling that comes from bringing the characters of *StarWars* into the real world and sharing the magic with others.

*To Contribute*While our organization was founded to simply provide a collective identityfor costuming fans with similar interests, the 501st is proud to put itsresources to good use through fundraising, charity work, and volunteerism.
