The events in and around the Capitol last night were horrific and have been rightly condemned on both sides of the Atlantic by all those who abhor political violence, threats and intimidation in an attempt to subvert democracy.
At The Jo Cox Foundation, we work to bring about a meaningful reduction in the intimidation and abuse in public life and raise widespread public awareness about its harmful impacts. On the third anniversary of the 2017 Intimidation in Public Life report, we are delighted to launch the Joint Statement on Conduct for political party members.
When you think of loneliness, what’s the image that comes to mind? Perhaps a solitary elderly person, nursing a cup of tea in the living room. A young child at school, hiding away from bullies in the playground. Or possibly a refugee who has lost their family, standing in a sea of unfamiliar faces, forced into an unknown new world alone.
The Jo Cox Foundation is seeking a consultant or organisation to work with us as we develop a diversity and inclusivity strategy and roadmap for our Moment to Movement project. Details about the project, the brief and the timeline for applications can be found in the attached invitation to tender.
