Each Councilmember was asked to honor one woman in the community, who is making an impact in the arts. Councilman LaBonge honored MCLA’s Executive Director Isabel Rojas-Williams to recognize her cultural contributions to Los Angeles. A reception was held at 8.30AM at the City Hall's Rotunda. The presentation took place in Council Chambers at 10:00 AM.
