Today people across the UK will be attending events to remember the late MP Jo Cox, who was murdered a year ago today as she attended a constituency surgery in Birstall.
Thousands are due to take part in events called the "Great Get Together" to spread her message of unity.
If you're going to an event in Yorkshire, send us your pictures and we'll feature them in galleries throughout the day.
Presenter, BBC Radio Sheffield
History will be made tonight as Yorkshire's two regional news programmes BBC Look North and ITV Calendar come together to report on the Great Get Together events in memory of Jo Cox.
Today marks exactly a year since the Batley and Spen MP was murdered and the two programmes are both broadcasting from Birstall Market Place where one of the events is happening.
Harry Gration from Look North and Calendar's Christine Talbot will host two programmes together - one on ITV at 18:00 and the second on BBC One in Yorkshire at 1830, which is the first time it has ever been done in the programmes' near 50 year history.
Both joined me to discuss the plan for tonight's shows:

Today is the start of the Great Get Together, where communities will come together to celebrate the life of Batley and Spen MP, Jo Cox who was murdered a year ago.
Events are planned to take place across the UK, including here in Yorkshire and her husband Brendan was keen to do something special to mark the anniversary:
The Sheffield Heeley MP Louise Haigh was a friend of Jo and told me she had hoped politics would change following Mrs Cox's death:
Communities will come together later to celebrate the life of the murdered MP Jo Cox.
The 41-year-old was shot and stabbed in Birstall, in her Yorkshire constituency of Batley and Spen, on 16 June 2016.
To mark the first anniversary of her death her family and friends have urged people to hold events that celebrate her life.
The Great Get Together, involving picnics, street parties and concerts, runs across the weekend.
Organised by the Jo Cox Foundation, it aims to reinforce the message in Mrs Cox's maiden speech in the House of Commons that "we have more in common than that which divides us".
On Friday it'll be a year since Labour MP, Jo Cox, was shot and stabbed in her constituency.
The mother-of-two and MP for Batley and Spen, 41, was attacked by politcal extremist Thomas Mair while she was on her way to a constituency event on 16 June last year.
Now, as the anniversary of her death approaches, her parents and sister have been remembering her.
They say they're still learning to cope with the loss:
Jo Cox would have been "hugely excited" by the Labour Party's performance in the General Election, her widower said.
Brendan Cox, whose wife was shot and stabbed in her Batley and Spen constituency on 16 June 2016, told BBC Radio Four's Today programme her murder failed in its aim to push people apart.
He urged people to take part in a nationwide event to mark the anniversary of the MP's death.
The Great Get Together will see scores of picnics and community events held.
Mr Cox said: "It was a weird election for me because last time, two years ago, I was with her at the count.
"This one felt very empty just on a very personal level."
