The Labour MP for Batley and Spen was shot and stabbed by far-right extremist Thomas Mair.
Mair shouted "Britain first" in the attack, which took place a week before the EU referendum vote.
Kim Leadbeater said it was time for people to be more tolerant and listen to the point of view of others.
She said: "How can we still be living in a world where people are abused, attacked and killed because of the colour of their skin?"

Alden Bryce Barlow, 55, of Milton Walk, Doncaster, South Yorkshire, sent a letter to Ms Soubry in her constituency in Nottingham.
The message read: "Cox was first, you are next" and referred to Ms Soubry as "treacherous" and "worthless".
He was jailed at Sheffield Crown Court and given a 10-year order preventing him from contacting Ms Soubry.
He was also ordered not to go near Ms Soubry's constituency address in Nottingham.
The campaigner says she watched the ill-tempered debate in the commons on Wednesday in "total horror and disgust".
