Mitch Landrieu is the Former Mayor of New Orleans

We’re excited to host Mitch Landrieu, former Mayor of New Orleans, as our first guest speaker in a discussion moderated by Silicon Allee Co-Founder, Travis Todd. During his two terms as mayor, Mitch 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.

In true NOLA* fashion, UNPLUGGED will start off the evening with a live band. Come early for the free beer and snacks, stay for the inspirational talk and stick around for a rowdy live concert.

* New Orleans, Louisiana, for those outside the Deep South
