Inspired by Jo Cox
This year, the third Great Get Together weekend will take place on 21st – 23rd June 2019, which would have been Jo’s 45th birthday.
The Great Get Together is inspired by Jo Cox, who was killed on 16 June 2016. We believe there is a groundswell of people who reject divisive politics and simply want to bring our communities together and celebrate all that unites us. This is our chance.
As the prime minister said, when she remarked on Jo’s death in her New Year’s message 2017, we have an opportunity to move forward and “bring this country together, as never before”.
Jo’s family and friends came up with the initiative and more than one hundred organisations are now supporting us, see our partners page for the full list!
This campaign is inspired by Jo Cox, but we expect people to take part for many different reasons.
