Dear Honorable McQuade,
My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan with a strong interest in learning history, social justice, and public policy. In these subjects, I like to learn the need to make Civil Rights stronger to reduce discrimination, protect the environment from pollution, push for criminal justice reform to reduce crime while protect people’s rights, and many others. Honorable McQuade, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan to be very inspiring to me.
In 2010, I liked on how you accepted President Barack Obama to appoint you to serve as U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan to help our country. I liked on how you made history by becoming the first woman to serve as U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan. On Civil Rights, I liked on how you advocated for people with disabilities’ rights, worked with law enforcement including President Obama to make laws to help protect people who are different from hate-crime, and prosecuted people who committed hate-crime in order to protect minorities, people with disabilities, women. Another thing that I liked on how you worked with law enforcement including minorities communities to find ways to reduce racial profiling to protect minorities from being targeted without probable cause and to launch Detroit One, a initiative to find ways to reduce violence. In order to protect the environment, I was very proud on how you had the courage to prosecute companies or industries to polluted water resources with toxic chemicals. Also when you served as U.S. Attorney, I liked on how you worked with FBI to combat against corruption or people who accepted illegal bribes, prosecuted financial institutions that committed financial fraud against people or abuse taxpayer’s money, implemented drug treatment programs to help drug-users get the care they need, pushed for more victim’s rights along with more programs to help victims of domestic violence get assistance, and added a health care fraud unit to help combat against health care fraud that health care companies or medical professionals that did this.
Honorable McQuade, 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 of Civil Rights, your advocacy for people with disabilities’ rights, and combat against hate-crime really inspires me to work hard on my disability. Also I enjoy reading “U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade: A Fighter for Justice” on Detroit Free Press because you did an excellent job explaining about your life on what it was like growing up in Detroit and what it is like being a U.S. Attorney. Your work as U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan motivates me to continue my interest in learning history, social justice, and public policy. My future goal is to continue to learn on how criminal justice reform can make a great difference, understand the importance of social justice, and continue my passion for history.
Honorable McQuade, I’m very proud on how you made history by becoming the first woman to become U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan. Also I’m grateful on how you worked hard to make a great difference for our country including the criminal justice system. You have inspired me to work hard on my disability, have an interest in learning about your work on criminal justice reform, and to be motivated to continue my interest in learning different subjects. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make an impact on society, and inspiring me. Here is a picture of me as a gift to you for inspiring me. I hope someday I can get a chance to meet you so I can learn more about your work as U.S. Attorney.
