Jo Cox’s life was marked by her compassion and by her passion. She worked tirelessly for a fairer, kinder and more tolerant world. And she believed passionately that even the greatest challenges could be overcome. Jo was a campaigner and an active member of her community.


Jo was murdered on the 16th June 2016 in the place she loved, her constituency of Batley and Spen, doing the work she loved, as an MP committed to helping the public.


The reaction to her death – in Yorkshire, across Britain and throughout the world – showed that the values she lived by are widely shared.


More in Common Batley and Spen is based in the area where Jo grew up and works on the issues she believed in, across the county that she loved.

“We are far more united and have far more in common than that which divides us.”
