Dear U.S. District Judge Gonzales,
My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan with a strong interest in learning history and social justice. In these subjects, I like to learn the need for Civil Rights to be stronger to reduce discrimination, have criminal justice reform to help protect people’s rights while reduce crime, and many others. U.S. District Judge Gonzales, the main reason I’m writing you a letter to explain how I find your work as U.S. Attorney for the District of New Mexico and as U.S. District Judge to be very inspiring to me.
When you served as U.S. Attorney for the District of New Mexico from 2010-2013, I really liked on how you are a strong supporter of Civil Rights by prosecuting people who commit hate-crimes to help protect minorities including people with disabilities and working with public places to find ways to reduce discrimination against women, minorities, and people with disabilities, and advocating for people with disabilities’ rights. Also I liked on how you worked with President Obama to find ways to push for criminal justice reform. Your approach on criminal justice reform like expand programs to help victims of domestic violence including victims of crime get help on their trauma or get legal services, push for more drug treatment programs to help drug-users get the care they need to reduce drug addiction, and implement educational awareness programs to help teach people about the need to reduce gun violence, bullying, and drug abuse is common sense. Also what I like about when you served as U.S. Attorney was on how you prosecuted industries that polluted the environment or violated environmental laws, went after corrupt public officials who accepted illegal bribes or gifts, and worked to help Native Americans communities get resources they need to help protect their community from crime. In January 2013, I liked on how you accepted President Obama to nominate you to serve as U.S. District Judge for the United States District Court for the District of New Mexico to help him improve the judicial system and society. In your current role as U.S. District Judge, I’m very proud on how you are a continuous strong supporter of Civil Rights and an advocate for criminal justice reform
U.S. District Judge Gonzales, I have autism with a learning disability. Having a disability is hard for me because I have trouble comprehending on learning different advance subjects, sometimes I struggle to communicate my thoughts, and get teased. Your commitment to be a strong supporter of Civil Rights including people with disabilities’ rights really inspires me to work hard on my disability. Also your work as U.S. Attorney for the District of New Mexico and your current position in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Mexico motivates me to continue to learn history and social justice. My future goal is to someday work in these areas to help emphasize the need to make Civil Rights stronger to reduce discrimination, have criminal justice reform to help protect people’s rights while reduce crime, and many others.
I strongly believe that you made a great difference for society including the judicial system in your role as U.S. Attorney and your current role in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Mexico. I’m very proud on how you are working hard to make Civil Rights a better place and improve criminal justice reform including social justice. You have inspired me to work hard on my disability and to continue to be motivated to learn history with social justice. I was wondering if you could please share some advice about working hard on a disability and explain what it is like serving as U.S. Attorney including your current position in the U.S. District Court. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, making a great difference in the judicial system, and inspiring me. Please continue to advocate for common sense ideas in the judicial system.
