Origin

"Star Wars" fans from all around the world have for a long time now expressed the need to get in touch with each other, in order for their local fandoms to develop and grow. S.W.O.R.A. has been created to answer that need.
S.W.O.R.A. was initially formed by eight people from seven different countries, along with the "Star Wars" actor Gerald Home. The aim of the Alliance is to expand its borders and reach out to more fans from many other countries, thus increasing the number of its members.
