Richelle Huizar, a commissioner on the Los Angeles City Commission on the Status of Women and the wife of NELA city councilmember José Huizar will be a host of the 48th annual conference of the National Association of Commissions for Women, to be held in L.A. this year from Aug. 1 through Aug. 4 at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel downtown. The conference, themed Cities Leading Women, will bring together leaders in nonprofits, business and academia with empowerment activists, community organizers and other professionals and students, to learn from one another about how to make life better for women and families in their communities.

Amid an FBI investigation, Huizar has been stripped of power at City Hall and has disappeared from community gatherings. “He’s toxic,” says one former councilman. - Photo: Genaro Molina/Los Angeles Times
