NARAL’s The Morning After is a production of NARAL Pro-Choice Ohio.
This week, Kelley, Vashitta, and Gabe discuss Rep. Emilia Sykes being stopped and questioned when trying to enter the Ohio Statehouse. Building security told her “You don’t look like a legislator.” Rep. Sykes is one of only nine Black women in the Ohio General Assembly, so we found it both shocking and insulting that she would not be identifiable by the highway patrol guards.
