an evening with Jo Berry
8th December 2016
Disarming with empathy
Jo Berry will tell the story of her incredible journey to becoming the friend and colleague of former IRA member, Pat Magee, the man who planted the bomb which killed her father, MP Anthony Berry, in the IRA Brighton bomb.
Sharing moving insights into her personal story Jo illustrates the power of empathy over demonization of the ‘other’ when approaching conflict. How we can break the cycle of violence and revenge when we find the humanity we share, and how peace starts with each and every one of us. ‘Watch (Jo’s Ted Talk) and believe there is hope for the world’ Stephen Fry ‘. . . a living demonstration of the transforming power of reconciliation’ Terry Waite CBE
