Each generation has been called to bring us a little closer to our highest ideals—and history’s calling on us right now. So let’s all do whatever we can to help @JoeBiden expand that promise to all Americans. https://t.co/5zby4l3W5H Mitch Landrieu 1 week ago:   Saturday Jul 4 - 10:56am Part of our challenge is that our history hasn’t been told honestly or thru an equitable lens. The landscape-from our textbooks, museums, & public spaces-doesn’t accurately reflect our whole history. This moment gives us an opportunity to be intentional about how to correct that. Mitch Landrieu 1 week ago:   Saturday Jul 4 - 10:56am America- our ideals & our promise- are worth celebrating. This Independence Day, we must also reflect on the fact that we've never lived up to the ideals set out in our founding documents, particularly on racial equality. Having this discussion is our patriotic duty. Mitch Landrieu 1 week ago:   Friday Jul 3 - 4:30pm Racism has been an urgent matter since our founding and we continue to look past it. It's one of the most troubling issues we face. Now we have the opportunity to make changes in our communities that set us on the path toward an equitable future for all https://t.co/FFTMIqPgIV Mitch Landrieu 1 week ago:   Friday Jul 3 - 1:33pm RT @unumfund: We must remember that not every American is free to celebrate.

Mitch Landrieu 2 weeks ago:   Monday Jun 29 - 12:31pm RT @JamesWLoewen: The new preface to my bestseller, titled "Lies My Teacher Told Me in the Age of Alternative Facts," shows that historians went off on a tangent that complexified the matter of truth, impairing their ability to help Americans reason from the past to understand the present.

Mitch Landrieu 3 weeks ago:   Tuesday Jun 23 - 5:30pm Many times when you take confederate monuments down, one of the first defenses is ‘where is this going to end?’ My answer is I don’t know, but it should begin with the confederate generals who were put up specifically to intimidate & make a statement about who was in charge. Mitch Landrieu 3 weeks ago:   Tuesday Jun 23 - 3:32pm As I see these monuments falling in states like Mississippi, North Carolina, and right here in my home state of Louisiana, I am proud to witness a learning moment for our country.
