Telling Your Story

Spotlight on your sister city program! One of the most popular parts of the Sister Cities International website is the City Search, where people from around the globe search to find their sister cities. With a membership profile, your sister city organization and its partnerships are highlighted. Sister Cities International also provides promotional services that help others learn about your program. Our Communications team assists members in getting the word out about upcoming events, activities, delegation visits, and other sister city-related experiences to the public, media, and a network of thousands of volunteers. Additionally, in a time of international crisis or controversy, Sister Cities International guides member programs to effectively respond to the issues at hand.
