The month of October has been a busy one for the LLC members. This month the LLC has been focusing a lot on the social issues that have been surrounding our college.  In the beginning of October the residents attended a Distinguished Lecturer Series event about Black Lives Matter, here they heard two of the founders talk in an Q & A style forum with Alicia Garza and Patrisse Cullors. This event had a great turn out and was positively received by the residents.
 The Black Lives Matter topic was also the subject of the October Bulletin board done by RA Angelo and RA Dulce. The bulletin board showed various facts about statistics surrounding the topic, tweets, and profiles of some of the victims.  

 Towards the end of October the residents focused a lot on getting the floor spooky for West-O-Ween. They spent a lot of time decorating their doors as well as the lounge area. The lounge was also home to the "Don’t Mess up when you Dress-up" event which was about cultural appropriation during Halloween.  During the event the residents took a handprint pledge to no culturally appropriate during Halloween and they also made animal ear headbands.
