Muslim World Partnership Initiative
Sister Cities International recognizes that in order to secure a more peaceful future, we must encourage better understanding and cooperation between the U.S. and the Muslim world. The Muslim World Partnership Initiative supports the formation of sister city programs between U.S. communities and communities in the Muslim world. The Muslim World Partnership Initiative encourages mutual respect, understanding and cooperation through sister city partnerships, educational outreach and joint programs. This Initiative includes three primary goals:
- Strengthen the existing sister city partnerships between the U.S. and Muslim world and form new partnerships.
- Demonstrate through these sisters city partnerships that mutual respect, understanding and cooperation can be built and sustained between the United States and the Muslim world.
- Share the remarkable stories of these partnerships and programs to help inform and educate the American public about the positive impact of citizen diplomacy.
