Jo Cox Cambridge Memorial Lecture 2021
The Department of Sociology and Murray Edwards College invite you to the Annual Jo Cox Cambridge Memorial Lecture on 16th June 2021
Jo Cox MP was a former student of Social and Political Sciences at Cambridge and a committed politician, humanitarian, wife and mother. In June 2016, Jo was murdered by a far-right activist whilst working in her constituency, Batley and Spen. Jo dedicated her life to helping others, campaigning tirelessly for a fairer, kinder and more tolerant world.
