With the kind permission and cooperation of the 501st Legion’s national headquarters, we will be helping to promote upcoming 501st events across the globe in a way that will be both accessible and easy to follow. The 501st is a worldwide organization of volunteers that not only spreads the joy of Star Wars but works toward bettering their communities through various charities and fundraisers. At the heart of the organization is a group of Star Wars costume enthusiasts, but on the outside is a group that serves the communities they live in.

For those of you who would like to show their support, or would just like an opportunity to meet the individuals who serve in the 501st, here is a list of the upcoming 501st Legion events kicking off this week:
