In 1960, Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley signed the first Sister Cities agreement with Warsaw, Poland.
Since then Chicago has established official relationships with a total of 28 cities in almost every region of the world. Today, Chicago Sister Cities International is the most active Sister Cities organization in the U.S. Operating under the guidelines established by Sister Cities International, the program has greatly impacted Chicago’s international activity and its status as a leading global city.
We've taken a couple of the cites we like and put them on the back of our newest zip up hoodie. Chicago doesn't always get the credit it deserves, but those who travel know very well that this is a WORLD CLASS city.
