Press Release

Washington, DC - Today, U.S. Representative Brenda L. Lawrence (MI-14), Founder and Co-Chair of the Congressional Caucus on Black-Jewish Relations, voted for H.R.5323, the Iron Dome Supplemental Appropriations Act. This bill provides $1 billion in funding for Israel’s Iron Dome, a short-range missile defense system.

“Today, I proudly voted to fully fund the Iron Dome. I can’t even begin to fathom how many innocent lives would be lost if not for this defense system,” said Rep. Brenda Lawrence. “With this funding, Israel can continue to protect its citizens while preventing further death and destruction. The Iron Dome is instrumental in furthering stability in Israel and the entire region. My commitment to Israel is unwavering, and I will continue to do everything possible to help our ally.”
