Washington, D.C. — On Friday, June 16, in the aftermath of New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu’s (D) speech on the removal of confederate monuments in his city, the Center for American Progress will host the mayor for a keynote address on his decision and an armchair discussion with CAP President and CEO Neera Tanden on the sentiments expressed in his speech and the future of a movement for unity while honoring our diversity and acknowledging our shared history.
The mayor’s address garnered national attention, addressing the all too often ignored history of slavery, the confederacy, and the legacy of white supremacy in America and making a call to action for progress in honoring diversity not just in his city but nationwide.
This event is open to press. To RSVP, please email Tanya Arditi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
