Nearly 200 Dedications Worldwide

The Ronald Reagan Legacy Project, in honor of the birth date of our 40th President, commends the bipartisan group of twenty-seven Governors who proclaimed February 6, 2024, as Ronald Reagan Day in their respective states. The RRLP also is proud to highlight the 182 dedications to Reagan worldwide: schools, roads, parks, statues, and other landmarks in the United States and overseas.

President Reagan worked to restore the American spirit and instill a sense of pride in the nation during a time of immense challenges. He believed strongly in the power of the individual and worked tirelessly to promote these ideals both at home and abroad. His sunny optimism and unique ability to connect with the American people directly endeared him to millions of Americans.

During his two terms from 1981 to 1989, President Reagan’s focus on individual liberty and economic freedom led to one of the longest economic expansions in American history. And his “peace through strength” approach led to the demise of the Soviet Union and freed millions of people from the horrors of communism.

“Ronald Reagan created the modern Republican party of limited government, low taxes, and a strong national defense. He used that party to change the nation. And then he changed the world,” said Grover Norquist, chairman of the Ronald Reagan Legacy Project. 

This year, at least 26 states have proclaimed Ronald Reagan Day:

  • Alabama – Kay Ivey (R)
  • Alaska – Mike Dunleavy (R)
