Washington, D.C. - U.S. Representative Brenda L. Lawrence (MI-14) issued the following statement regarding the farmer protests in India:

"The U.S.-India relationship is critical for peace and stability in the greater Indo-Pacific and is marked by our shared commitments to democracy, respect for human rights, and the rule of law, including the right to peacefully protest. On behalf of my constituents who represent the Indian diaspora community and who are using their voice for what they believe in, I hope for a meaningful resolution to the farmer protests in India and welcome the Indian Government’s engagement with the protestors in the hopes they are able to find an acceptable resolution."
