More in Common: Cardiff festival of action to celebrate the life of Jo Cox MP
Wednesday 22 June, 4-7pm, Temple of Peace
I was just writing a ‘what’s on this week’ blog post, but it seemed too reductive to put this event in between all the artsy / cultural stuff going on. It deserves its own post.
This event calls for individuals, community activists and organisations to join a festival of activism for ‘making a difference’, this Wednesday evening 4-7pm in Cardiff in honour of the life and example of campaigner, humanitarian, feminist and MP Jo Cox.
A worldwide event is being held across a number of continents and countries this Wednesday – which would have been Jo’s birthday. The theme is “what can we do?” – which was very much Jo’s approach to life (see worldwide events celebrating Jo’s life)
We’d like to invite anyone with an interest in volunteering and activism for a better world. And we’d like to invite organisations, particularly those involved in causes such as international development, human rights, refugees, women’s rights and tackling poverty, to come and share their work – with new faces and old – and explain how people can get involved in making a difference and showing we have “more in common” in this country and abroad.
Hope not hate.
