The San Francisco Branch of Legion of Estonian Liberation was founded in 1954. The objective of the organization was to inform the public of the (political) situation in Estonia. The organization took part in the activities of the Captive Nations, gathered donations for the war invalids in Germany, etc. The San Francisco branch disbanded in 1994, because of the small number of members.
