Tis the season!

We won’t lie – 2020 has been rough on all of us. The pandemic has forced us to push pause on building “in person” connections (the true spirit of Birmingham Sister Cities), yet we have found new ways to connect virtually with communities and friends all around the globe.

December 1st is Giving Tuesday, and we humbly ask for your support to keep funding the critical work we do. Your contribution will help us to enter 2021 with the ability to expand our programming and member services.

great podcast on Sister Cities - I highly recommend as a fun overview of the history of twinning cities....
Why was the Sister City status ended with Maebashi, Japan ended. Their gift of the tea house to the Botanical Gardens was a generous and very valuable gift. Who can answer this and offer an explanation?
Why did Birmingham end it's Sister City relationship with Maebashi, Japan? Their gift to the Botanical Gardens of the tea house is one of the greatest and most valuable assets ever given to the city. Who can answer this and give a reasonable explanation?
