During his two terms as mayor, Landrieu lead New Orleans’ revival from the lingering aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and the 2010 Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill. He gained national recognition after initiating the removal of four confederate monuments, which earned him the John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award. The discussion with Mitch will highlight the importance of building a strong neighborhood community with emphasis on cultural inclusivity, and how technology has influenced the progression of New Orleans during his time as mayor.
