The Citistates Group is America's only journalist team focused first and foremost on metropolitan regions and how they position themselves to cope with the demanding economic, environmental, social challenges of the 21st century.

Neal Peirce and Curtis Johnson have written written "Citistates" Reports on strategic issue sets facing 26 U.S. metros, the results published in over 50 newspapers from the 1980s onward.

The Citistates Group, managed by Farley Peters, the group's organizer and strategist, includes a collegial network of Associates with parallel interests and achievements. Many are public speakers and authors of cutting-edge research and writing in the field.

Recently the Group created Citiwire.net -- a weekly news service -- and Citiscope.org, a non-profit focused on 21st century connections and learning among cities and metro regions, in the United States but also worldwide as the urban agenda of our time turns global.
