The Jo Cox Foundation was established in 2016 by the friends and family of the late Jo Cox MP. The Foundation exists to build a positive legacy for Jo and to create something positive from the tragedy that was her murder. Just as Jo did, we believe in working together effectively with individuals and organisations that share the belief that we have more in common than that which divides us.
Our mission is to build stronger communities, a better public life and a fairer world in Jo’s name. To date, our campaigns and initiatives have addressed a broad range of issues including tackling loneliness, reducing abuse and intimidation in public life and preventing atrocities in conflict-affected countries.
