Statement from President Julia Christensen Hughes on Human Rights Violations in Iran

Toronto Film School (TFS) and Yorkville University (YU) support the human rights of all peoples, and strongly express condemnation in relation to the persecution occurring in Iran.

We express heartfelt sympathy and utmost concern for the Iranian community in Canada and abroad, including YU and TFS faculty, staff, and students.

Together, we stand for diversity, freedom, social justice, and equity.



Julia Christensen Hughes President, Yorkville Education Company
