Origin: The BIPoC lounge was started in 2018 because of the need for spaces at the University of Winnipeg to be inclusive of BIPoC individuals on campus and in the surrounding community. Also, through the student group, Students of Colour Collective (SOCC). It was made possible through the support of 2018/19 team – President Morgan Brightnose, VPIA Brenden Gali, and VPEA Zee Morales.
