New York State Sister Cities Association
Sister Cities International is a nonprofit citizen diplomacy network that creates and strengthens partnerships between U.S. and international communities. We strive to build global cooperation at the municipal level, promote cultural understanding and stimulate economic development.
Sister Cities International is a leader for local community development and volunteer action. We motivate and empower private citizens, municipal officials and business leaders to conduct long-term sister city programs. We believe that sister city programs involve two-way communication and should mutually benefit partnering communities.
The New York State Sister Cities Association initiates, facilitates and supports the relationships and cross-cultural activities and exchanges between municipalities in New York State and their sister cities around the globe.
