ACEVO Interim Chief Executive Asheem Singh said:
“The death of Jo Cox has left us numb. Our hearts go out to her husband and children. Public service and the charity sector have lost an exemplary leader. Her campaigning in arenas as diverse as Darfur and the rights of oppressed represented the very highest values held by charities and campaign groups of all shapes and sizes and the leaders who drive them. We must stand shoulder to shoulder with her husband Brendan in his call ‘to fight the hatred that killed her’. And we will take the lesson of her achievements by continuing to campaign for a better world for all with the same vigour and intelligence that Jo Cox brought to our lives”.
