About B-CS Sister Cities
Sister Cities Int'l was created at President Dwight D. Eisenhower's 1956 White House conference on citizen diplomacy, where he envisioned an organization that could be a champion for peace and prosperity by fostering bonds between people from different communities around the world. By forming relationships, he reasoned that people of different cultures could celebrate and appreciate their differences and build partnerships that would lessen the chances of new conflicts.
B-CS Sisters Cities was established then, in 1989 to promote cultural understanding, fellowship, and communications between our cities and our first sister city, Kazan, Russia. However, Kazan has been moved to an Emeritus Status, as well as our second Sister City (ZuaZua, Mexico). We have 3 sister cities at present. They are: Bastogne-Belgium; Greifswald-Germany and Salamanca-Mexico.
The B-CS Sister Cities Association is affiliated with both the Texas Sister Cities Association and the International Sister Cities Association.
Recognizing our role in the global community, the purpose of the B-CS Sister Cities Association is to facilitate mutual cultural understanding, education, relationships and technical and economic development exchange.
Sister Cities International promotes peace through mutual respect, understanding, and cooperation—one individual, one community at a time.
