Emilia Sykes is a freshman Member of Congress representing Akron and Canton.
Sykes, the former Minority Leader of the Ohio House of Representatives, has a track record of reaching across the aisle to deliver real results for Ohioans. She is focused on public safety, protecting women’s right to choose, jobs and rising costs.
In conversations with J Street, Sykes made clear her strong support for Israeli security, Palestinian self-determination, and her opposition to actions that could push peace further out of reach. She also backs a diplomatic solution to the Iran nuclear crisis that would block their path to a bomb and avoid a potentially catastrophic war of choice.
