Today, 22 July 2016, would have been Jo Cox's 42nd birthday. Her friends and supporters are holding various events to celebrate her life. Even though it is the day before the EU referendum, it will not be political in nature. Rather, it will aim for a show of unity around Cox's maiden speech to parliament last June, when she said, "We have far more in common with each other than things that divide us."

The main event is today in Trafalgar Square at 4pm where people are invited to "come together to celebrate Jo's warmth, love, energy, passion, flair, Yorkshire heritage, and belief in the humanity of every person in every place, from Batley and Spen (her constituency) to Aleppo and Daraya" (places Jo visited during her time with Oxfam). Before that, there will be a floating commemoration on the Thames, reflecting the MP's houseboat home on the river with her husband Brendan and their two small children.
