Azerbaijanian American Cultural Alliance (AACA) is a non-profit 501(c)(3), educational, charitable, social and cultural organization founded by Azerbaijanian-Americans in Houston in 2009.

Next to being a home to Azerbaijanian-Americans, AACA addresses their social and cultural needs and helps them integrate into this multicultural society better. The mission of AACA is to introduce Azerbaijanian culture into American society and cultivate friendship and promote the understanding of diverse cultures through its unique services to the community, through dialog and corporation.

Azerbaijanian American Cultural Alliance contributes in colorful life of society by organizing, sponsoring and hosting cultural and social events such as Cultural nights, Nevruz picnics, traditional dinners, International Women’s day, soccer games, where we enjoy and strengthen friendship ties with our neighbors and local communities and form a culture of “living together”.

In addition, we host artistic exhibitions throughout the year. Kids, youngsters, and adults are all together once a year but its taste is always in our minds: AACA family workshops, which include many activities such as sports, reading, delicious meals, and more.

Houston-Baku Sister City Association

Since 1976, the Houston Baku Sister City Association (HBSCA) has been involved in the promotion of mutual understanding, appreciation & cooperation between the citizens of Houston, Texas and Baku, Azerbaijan.

US President Dwight D. Eisenhower established Sister Cities International in an effort to lessen the chance of future world conflicts. The President proposed a people-to-people network between the United States and other nations that would involve people and organized groups at all levels of society. US cities were encouraged to partner with cities in other countries and create citizen diplomacy networks to build global cooperation, promote cultural understanding and stimulate economic development. These programs were to be based on two-way communication that would mutually benefit those partnering communities.

HBSCA is a member of Sister Cities of Houston and one of Houston’s 17 Sister Cities.

As a volunteer based organization, our activities are managed by the President and Executive Director in consultation with the Board of Directors. HBSCA is a non profit organization 501 (c)3 and receives administrative support from the Mayor of Houston’s office.
