Sister Cities of Morgan Hill
Founded in 2002, we are an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) membership nonprofit funded through annual dues and local donations. Members are committed to promoting peace through mutual respect, understanding, and cooperation, one individual, on community at a time.
Morgan Hill's sister cities are in Japan, Ireland, Mexico, Italy, and Turkey. The nonprofit also manages a cultural exchange program for teen-aged high schoolers between Morgan Hill and Italy.
Our Mission: Promote Peace Through People
Morgan Hill Sister Cities creates relationships based on cultural, educational, information and trade exchanges with cities and citizens of other nations to promote peace through people.
What is a Sister City Relationship?
Activities within Sister City relationships include visits between citizens of both cities, cultural exchanges between art, music, performing arts, sports and other areas of mutual interest, plus possible affiliations between schools and student organizations.
On November 30, 2018 Sister Cities of Morgan Hill added Ameca, Mexico to its roster of city-to-city connections. The relationship was formalized in a Morgan Hill Proclamation on Nov. 30, signed between the Morgan Hill Mayor at the time, Steve Tate, and Juan Valentín Serrano Jiménez, Municipal President of the City of Ameca.
