Washington, DC – “On behalf of IRI Board Chairman Senator John McCain, Vice Chairman Peter T. Madigan and President Lorne W. Craner IRI is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Dr. Jeane J. Kirkpatrick, an active supporter of IRI since the mid-1980s and a member of IRI’s Board of Directors since 1993.
“Dr. Kirkpatrick was the intellectual author of the movement to assist in building democracies abroad, as an advisor to President Ronald Reagan and Ambassador to the United Nations. As a result of her work and her commitment to democracy, millions around the world are living freer lives. Her leadership is irreplaceable and she will be greatly missed by all of us.
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to Dr. Kirkpatrick’s family and friends.”Top
