Our Mission Statement 

Promoting peace and kindness through mutual respect, cultural understanding, and cooperation – one individual, one community at a time. We foster international and intercultural understanding through program and project development focusing on the arts, culture, citizen diplomacy, youth education and exchange, and community connections.



A Message from the President

We are appreciative to the Culver City community and our sister cities around the world for your ongoing interest and support as we continue to strengthen our bonds locally and internationally.

We are eager to ramp up our activities with our sister cities around the world and the Culver City community after so many of our events were canceled during the Covid pandemic. Earlier this year, 2023, we were able to facilitate a successful Culver City high school youth exchange to Kaizuka and welcomed Kaizuka marathon runners to Culver City. We have also been regularly engaging with our two prospective sister cities, Swakopmund, Namibia and Uddevalla, Sweden, toward formalizing sister city relations in the future.

A Few Words from the Mayor

As the mayor of our beloved city, I want to take a moment to express my sincere appreciation for your dedication in fostering strong bonds with all our sister cities.

Over the years, our sister city relationships have blossomed into a truly remarkable partnership, enriched by cultural exchanges, collaborative projects, and meaningful friendships. Through our joint efforts, we have witnessed the power of international cooperation and the positive impact it can have on our communities.

Your passion and enthusiasm have been instrumental in promoting understanding, friendship, and mutual respect between all our cities – which is key to humanity.

As we look to the future, I encourage exploring new partnerships with more cities for even greater cultural exchange.

Warm regards,

Albert Vera
Mayor, City of Culver City
