Success Story

Sister City Project Update • April 2022

Richland Center, WI and Santa Teresa, Nicaragua, have been sister cities  for 35 years! The Sister City Project has made a difference in the lives of hundreds of people in three generations.  We have helped protect the environment, with its tropical dry forest and migratory endangered sea turtles and birds. Twenty-five years ago, Santa Teresa mayor José Martinez asked us to focus on the municipality’s sea turtles and poorest villages, in Chacocente Wildlife  Refuge.

Madison Friends Meeting (Quakers) has a long history of work on social justice concerns. In recent years we have experimented with strengthening our effectiveness by identifying two focus issues for our work. Currently these are anti-racism and addressing climate change.
