Rest in Peace Jo

The inspirational Jo Cox MP

Like everyone, we are devastated at the loss of Jo Cox MP. As her husband Brendan said, Jo believed in a better world and she fought for it every day of her life. And the world is a better place because of Jo. From her time at Oxfam to her campaigning as an MP for the protection of the Syrian people, Jo used her remarkable energy, conviction and intellect to bring real change to peoples lives.

We are hugely grateful to everything Jo and Brendan have given to the fight for social justice, including their support for LCID from the very beginning. There was so, so much more we wanted to do to support her work and campaigning. We owe it to her to carry forward the issues she championed, especially the need to properly protect civilians in Syria and elsewhere. We will struggle to win change without her skill and tenacity, but we will give it our all. That is surely the best way to honour her memory.
