About Us

Promoting cultural understanding between Toulouse and Atlanta through educational programs and dynamic events.

History

A Message from the President

Thank you for visiting the website of The Atlanta Toulouse Sister Cities Committee (ATSCC).

On December 17, 1974, Atlanta mayor Maynard Jackson and Toulouse mayor Pierre Baudis signed a proclamation declaring Toulouse and Atlanta sister cities. Jackson had lived in Toulouse as a child, while his mother was pursuing her doctorate in French. He felt that the two sister cities would make excellent partners. And they have!

As we build on the legacy of mayor Jackson, we continuously seek to fulfill our mission of bringing the citizens of Atlanta and Toulouse together through cultural exchanges, events and dynamic trips abroad. Download our annual report here for a summary of our 2018 activities.

We would be honored if you would consider becoming a member of the ATSCC and help foster the strong ties between Atlanta and Toulouse. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about the ATSCC.

Sincerely,

Wes Samson,
