Margaret Thatcher, former British Prime Minister and Patron of The Heritage Foundation, passed away Monday morning. A great champion of individual liberty and freedom, her death will be mourned by all who support principled conservative values.

Lady Thatcher was a conviction politician, and believed firmly that without American leadership, this world is a far more dangerous place. And, in order to protect and advance her legacy in the United States, she established the Margaret Thatcher Center for Freedom at Heritage in 2005. Deciding to found the center in Washington, rather than London, proved her immense faith in American global leadership.

Nile Gardiner, the director of Heritage’s Margaret Thatcher Center for Freedom, expressed how imperative it is for us to carry on Lady Thatcher’s legacy:

It’s important for us to remember the importance of moving forward with core conservative beliefs. If Heritage does not defend these very values that Margaret Thatcher fought for, then America will be a far less prosperous society — a society that does not hold onto the beliefs of individual freedom, individual liberty. And for Margaret Thatcher, individual liberty, individual freedom, are what makes the United States a great nation.

How will you uphold Lady Thatcher’s legacy?
