Ahead of the May, 2023 Indo-Pacific Economic Framework (IPEF) ministerial meetings in Detroit, members of Congress who represent the Detroit-area spoke at a town hall on U.S. trade policy sponsored by Public Citizen, Communications Workers of America, United Auto Workers Region 1A, United Auto Workers Region 9, and United Steelworkers District 1.

U.S. Reps. Debbie Dingell (D-Mich.), Shri Thanedar (D-Mich.), and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) answered questions from local labor and civil society representatives, who asked for reassurances that IPEF would not replicate the damage that NAFTA and past free trade agreements had inflicted on their city.
