Event Description

On Jo Cox's (nee Leadbeater) birthday this Wednesday, show the world that we have far #moreincommon with each other than that which divides us.

We will gather together in Brussels at the Ancienne Belgique to celebrate Jo's warmth, love, energy, passion, flair, Yorkshire heritage, and belief in the humanity of every person in every place, from Batley and Spen to Aleppo and Darayya. Doors will open at 16.30.

Jo believed that there is more that unites us than divides us, and she was killed for those beliefs. She believed in a love that is fierce, brave and humble. Her death has devastated a family, and attacked the ideals that we as a nation most cherish.

But we will not be divided. We will rise up together to carry Jo's message forward. We will meet hate with love.

On the day Jo would have been 42, we are asking everyone, everywhere to love like Jo loved. 

Jo's legacy is a direct challenge to everyone here, to take part, speak up and be a voice for the voiceless, to treat even those we disagree with with tolerance and genuine respect. 

Let's honour Jo on Wednesday by carrying forward the message that she now symbolises around the world - that we have #moreincommon than that which divides us.
