Chicago Sister Cities is part of the larger national Sister Cities movement, which was founded in 1956 as a way to build relations between cities around the world. Chicago’s chapter was founded in 1960, with its first sister city connection made with Warsaw; today, Chicago is paired with over 20 cities in 5 continents. Throughout these cities, Chicago Sister Cities focuses on citizen-to-citizen engagement, forming relationships and making an impact through collaboration and understanding.
In Shelley Stern Grach’s latest Civic Chat: Networking Our Neighborhoods, she sits down with Leroy Allala, Executive Director of Chicago Sister Cities to discuss the relationships formed with these international partners and how we can support Chicago Sister Cities here on the ground.
