Sendai, with a population of one million, was the closest major city to the epicenter of the Japanese earthquake. Sendai and Dallas have been International Friendship Cities since 1997 and part of the Japan-America Society of Dallas/Fort Worth. Since the alliance was formed, the cities have shared cultures and experiences through exchange programs.
Now — as Japan tries to recover from the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear crisis — those on this side of the friendship are VERY concerned for their friends abroad. Dallas, Fort Worth and Southlake are three cities in the area that share sister-city relationships with Japan.
On APRIL 9TH in DALLAS, TX, well over 100 artists, photographers, sculptors, chefs, poets and performers will raised money for Japan and Sendai-OUR SISTER CITY..♥ - the event is called: FLOOD OF EMOTION/Artists Healing JAPAN
