Mitch and Michelle begin their discussion by commenting on the poor conditions of America’s rural infrastructure, and how President Biden is keeping his promise to rural Americans to help rebuild. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill has money allotted to assist rural communities with clean drinking water, fixing roads and bridges, increasing broadband internet access, modern wastewater systems, EV charging stations, and affordable electricity. “You want to design systems that are designed to make people healthy and happy, and bring them together… The President wants to make sure that everybody in rural America knows, not only that he sees them, but that he made a promise to invest in rural America and he is delivering on that promise,’ said Landrieu. Mitch also discussed the Biden Administration’s Rural Toolkit, which lets people know what programs there are, how much is in them, how to get them, and how to access them. You can find the Rural Toolkit at Build.gov/rural.

Washington Post congressional investigations reporter Jacqueline Alemany speaks with Mitch Landrieu and Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt (R) for conversations that explore both the challenges and the opportunities that lay ahead with critical infrastructure investment and the impact it may have on job creation and quality of life.Conversation recorded on Friday April 1, 2022.
Mitch Landrieu is a politician, attorney, author, nonprofit leader and staunch advocate for racial equity. He served as the 61st mayor of New Orleans from 2010 to 2018 and as Lieutenant Governor of Louisiana from 2004 to 2010. As mayor, he helped tackle some of the toughest problems his city faced; he developed lasting criminal justice reforms, created jobs, and awarded nearly half of all city contracts to firms owned by women and people of color. In 2017, he rose to national prominence over his decision to pull down four Confederate monuments across New Orleans. The following spring, he published the best-selling memoir, In the Shadow of Statues: A White Southerner Confronts History, both a personal story about his own journey around race and a call to action for white Americans, in particular, to confront the truth of America’s past. Later that year, Mitch launched E Pluribus Unum Fund, a nonprofit organization that aims to build an equitable and inclusive South through empowering leaders in racial equity, dismantling the narratives that perpetuate racism, and promoting transformative policy change. We can't heal the past we all carry, he says, “unless we set our minds to an honest reckoning with that past and a search for solutions grounded in genuine truth and justice.” We’re so excited for you to hear this conversation with Mitch Landrieu!
