How we, at the Jo Cox Foundation, are celebrating International Women's Day in honour of Jo.
Jo and parliamentary friends at the 2016 Macmillan House of Commons vs House of Lords Tug of War, her last public engagement.
Catherine Anderson, CEO of the Jo Cox Foundation, outlines how the current culture of violence in public life is a risk to both our democracy and the lives of our politicians.
The violent language and threatening behaviour exhibited towards MPs, journalists and others outside the Houses of Parliament this week have rightly drawn condemnation across the political spectrum. At the Jo Cox Foundation we are acutely aware of the appalling consequences that can follow if violence against politicians going about their work is taken to the extreme.
This year’s Great Christmas Get Together is off to a fantastic start, with people across the country coming together to share a #MincePieMoment.
On 21st November, 50:50 Parliament, Jo Cox Foundation, Fawcett Society, and Centenary Action Group are organising an awesome #AskHerToStand Day.
“For every life that is made less lonely as a result of the work Jo started, we will take great comfort"
On Thursday, 27th September Jo’s sister and parents attended the official inauguration of Jo Cox Square in the centre of Brussels.
The second Great Get Together was held in June 2018 on what would have been Jo’s 44th birthday. Through 4,500 events across the country, the Great Get Together proved the lasting value of Jo’s example and her belief that we have more in common than that which divides us.
It has been an amazing couple of years for the issues Jo cared most about.
The Jo Cox Foundation is delighted to announce the appointment of Catherine Anderson as its new Chief Executive. Catherine will start work in September when the current Director, Iona Lawrence, will leave after two years in the post.
