Jo Berry

Building Bridges for Peace
Watch the talk...

In 1984 an IRA bomb, planted in the Grand Hotel in Brighton, killed Jo Berry’s father. Jo knew she had a choice: to harbour feelings of hatred and anger, or to seek understanding and so bring peace back into her life. She chose peace.

Following his release from prison Jo sought out a meeting with Patrick Magee, the Brighton bomber. And from that initial three hours spent together Jo and Patrick have formed a remarkable friendship, based on compassion and respect. For the past 15 years they have travelled the world spreading a message of peace and understanding. At Meaning 2016 Jo shared their powerful story.

With political, religious and racial divides seemingly deepening as global and local events unfold, Jo offers a story of hope. And inspired us to see the humanity in those who at first appear to be our adversaries.
