[ARCHIVED] Hollywood Adds Laayoune, Morocco as Sister City

Sister Cities Morocco

Founded by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1956, Sister Cities International is a nonpartisan 501(c)(3) nonprofit which serves as the national membership organization for individual sister cities, counties, and states across the United States. This network unites tens of thousands of citizen diplomats and volunteers in nearly 500 member communities with over 2,000 partnerships in more than 140 countries.

The mission of the Sister Cities program is to promote peace through mutual respect, understanding and cooperation - one individual, one community at a time. The goal of the Sister Cities program is to create and strengthen partnerships between the U.S. and communities around the world through local government cooperation, cultural understanding and economic development activities. The value of face-to-face meetings and personal relationships across boarders helps communities all over the world thrive.
