The Iranian Association at the University of Toronto (UTIRAN), the Multi-Faith Centre and the Anti-Racism and Cultural Diversity Office join the University of Toronto in denouncing all forms of gender – based violence and repression of women’s rights. There is no denying the pain that many are feeling in light of the death of Mahsa Amini and violence in Iran.
