Dear Congresswoman Chu,
My name is Matthew Winick, an Asian American from Ann Arbor, Michigan with a strong interest in studying history. The main reason I have a strong interest in studying history is to understand and learning the need to advance on Civil Rights to help protect people who are different from discrimination, a strong need to protect the environment from pollution, have healthcare reform to help people with pre-existing conditions or who can’t afford insurance get the care they need, and a strong need for immigration reform to help protect refugees, immigrants, illegal immigrants from oppressive countries. The main reason I’m writing you a letter is because I find your work as a U.S. House of Representative from California 27th District and as Chairwoman of CAPAC to be very inspiring to me
In your role as U.S. House of Representative from California 27th District, I really like on your commitment to help advance on Civil Rights and advocate for the need to help protect people with disabilities, minorities, women, people with different sexual orientation from being discriminated in public places, jobs, education, and pay. Also on people with disabilities issue, I really like on your support on helping expand the ADA to help protect people with disabilities in education like me. Congresswoman Chu, you have a great record on protecting the environment by supporting renewable energy like wind, solar, safe biofuel, and energy efficient products as energy sources to reduce our addiction to oil with gas, voting against the Keystone Pipeline to help protect lands, famers, and water from a future oil spill, and helping extend tax credit to help business who work on creating clean energy jobs. On reforming Congress including elections I liked on how you supported an legislation STOCK Act to ban insider trading in Congress to reduce Congressional members from abusing tax payers money or using non-public information for their own profit and being a co-sponsor of the Disclosure Act to make campaigns including corporations with special interest groups disclosure to the public on their donations to a campaign or in an election to help public know who is putting money in elections or who is funding their campaign. In your current role as Chairwoman of CAPAC, I really like your commitment to support the need for Asian American diversity by finding ways to educate the public including Congress, protect with advancing on Civil Rights to help reduce discrimination, help give reparations to Asian including Asian Americans that were discriminated in the past to heal minorities communities including Asian Americans with Asians, support Asian Americans with disabilities’ rights, and advocate for the need for immigration reform to help immigrant, illegal immigrants, and refugees reunite with their family members or get protection from oppressive government in different countries.
Congresswoman Chu, I have Autism with a learning disability. Having a disability is hard for me because I have trouble comprehending on learning different subjects, sometimes I struggle to communicate my thoughts, and get teased. Your commitment to be a strong supporter on Civil Rights and help people with disabilities really inspires me to work hard on Autism. Being an Asian American with a disability is hard for me because some Asian along with some Asian Americans tease me about having a disability and they believe that I don’t meet their standards or fit in their culture. Also in your role as Chairwoman of CAPAC on helping spread awareness about Asian American, Asian with Pacific Islanders and advocating for Asian Americans with disabilities really motivates me to be proud to be an Asian American with a disability and to continue my interest in Asian with Asian American culture. Your work as Congresswoman and as current chairwoman of CAPAC really inspires me to continue learning history. My future goal is to someday teach history to help people understand the need to make Civil Rights stronger to end discrimination, emphasize the need for diversity to make society better, and many others.
I strongly believe that you are making a great difference for society, Civil Rights, and Asian American Pacific Islanders in your current role as Congresswoman from California 32nd District and as Chairwoman of CAPAC. You have truly inspired me to work hard on my disability, be proud to be an Asian American with a disability, and continue my interest in learning history with Asian culture. Also on July 8th 2016 when you did a FACEBOOK Q&A I was very happy that you replied back to my question and giving me a chance to mail my letter of appreciation of your work with how you inspire me. Thanks so much for taking the time to reply back to me on Facebook and I really had a great experience for the first time participating on Facebook Q&A with a Congresswoman. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, making a great difference on different issues, and inspiring me. I wish you well to continue to advocate for great ideas to make society better.
