#MOREINCOMMON - A Celebration of the life of Jo Cox

This campaign has ended.

On Jo Cox's birthday, this Wednesday June 22nd, we can show the world that we have far #moreincommon with each other than that which divides us.

People will be gathering around the world 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.

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.

On June 22nd, follow @jocoxmoreincommon and the hashtag #moreincommon to join the celebration of Jo's life with her family, friends, colleagues and community of supporters.

Organized Events:
London: 4pm-5pm, Trafalgar Square
Batley and Spen: 4pm-5pm
New York City: 11am-12pm, UNICEF
Washington, D.C.: 11am-12pm

Please sign the petition and we will send you the details when they are available - We will be posting updates here, through email, and on Twitter using the tag #moreincommon and through the main facebook page:

Why is this important?

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 everyone with tolerance and genuine respect, even those with whom disagree.

We cannot let the intolerance and violence of a single individual rob us of her life's potential. It is up to us all to carry forward her message and to make her mission our own.
