President Eisenhower founded the Sister City movement in 1956 to promote world peace and mutual understanding through citizen diplomacy.
Today, more than six decades later, the Sister City Initiative is still flourishing and Los Alamos is a committed partner to the effort.
The Los Alamos/Sarov Sister City Initiative works in conjunction with the State Department’s Open World Program, initiated in 1999 by the Library of Congress and authorized by the U.S. Congress to increase understanding between the United States and Russia.
The Russian city of Sarov has been the Sister City to Los Alamos, both nuclear science cities, for many years with more than 40 exchanges of visitors back and forth. And, beginning in the 1980s with the spirit of glasnost, Los Alamos scientists and those from Sarov visited and exchanged ideas on nonproliferation.
“We are so fortunate to have support from Los Alamos County, LANB, and many, many local organizations and businesses,” said Lawry Mann, president of the Los Alamos Sarov Sister Cities Initiative (LASSCI). “Teenagers from Sarov visited last summer and several of our Los Alamos teens visited Russia the previous year.”
