Tulsa Global Alliance manages the programming for Tulsa’s eight Sister Cities for the City of Tulsa. Contacts are sanctioned by Tulsa's Mayor. Each of Tulsa's City Councilors acts as an honorary Ambassador. Being a Sister City in the International Sister Cities Network means maintaining in-depth interactions between the cities.
How do we interact? Hundreds of area citizens coordinate complementary relationships with counterpart citizens and leaders in each of the eight foreign cities. Relationships involve educational exchanges, citizen travel, dignitary visits, internships, business interests, and tourism. For more information about how you can become involved with a Tulsa Sister City, contact Cathy Izzo, TGA Sister City Program Coordinator at .
