About Sister Cities:

The U.S. Sister Cities movement was founded on September 11, 1956 at a White House Conference on Citizen Diplomacy lead by U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Eisenhower urged attendees to "help build the road to an enduring peace" and "work out not one method but thousands of methods by which people can gradually learn a little bit more of each other". Originally part of People to People (PTP) then, the National League of Cities (NLC), Sister Cities International (SCI) became a separate, non-profit corporation in 1967. Today, SCI is the nation’s foremost citizen diplomacy movement with more than 2,300 communities participating in 130 countries.

Since 1982, Newport News has supported a Sister City program. Today the City boasts international partnerships in Japan, China, Germany, and France. As of 2021, SCNN is also actively pursuing a new relationship in Ireland.
