 We are very excited to be starting the year and getting to know everyone in our community. Our theme is Welcome Home to UWM and the LLC and as a part of that we had our first event, Home Sweet Home. Residents divided into groups for a building activity about privilege. Different amounts of supplies were given to different groups and each group had to try to make the best structure.

Afterwards we had a discussed about the purpose of the activity. We wrapped up by creating a list of community values and expectations for the year. We are looking forward to learning more about privilege and social justice this year.
