DSCI’s Statement regarding the violence at the US Capitol

January 6, 2021 was a dark day for the United States and democracy. A small group’s actions have shocked our country to its core through violent acts. We condemn these actions at the nation’s Capitol. Denver Sister Cities is committed to peace through citizen diplomacy, not violence. This was an attempt to disenfranchise the citizens of this country by negating their most fundamental right—the right to vote.

Despite these troubling times, DSCI remains hopeful. Through you, our supporters, exchange students, and volunteers we have always seen the power of citizen diplomacy, and how understanding and communication has the power to heel and transform people for the better. 

We thank you and the members of all Sister Cities, for helping promote peace and intercultural relations in Denver and around the world.

Yours in hope,
