Dear Attorney General Schneiderman,

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 to make Civil Rights stronger to reduce discrimination, protect the environment from pollution, and many others. Attorney General Schneiderman, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as current Attorney General of New York to be very inspiring to me.

In your current role as 65th Attorney General of New York, I’m very proud on how you are a strong supporter of Civil Rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, combating against people who commit hate-crime to help protect minorities including people who are different, and investigating public places that practice discrimination.   To protect the environment, I really liked on how you are prosecuting industries that pollute the environment including water resources to make them safe for people to use. Your approach to criminal justice reform like expand drug treatment programs to help drug-users get the care they need to reduce drug addiction, push for more community services to help non-violent offenders including non-violent juveniles get help in order to reduce re offending, and implement more educational awareness programs to help teach youth including people about the need to reduce bullying, gun violence, and drug abuse.  Another thing that I like about your work as NY Attorney General is how you prosecute corrupted public officials who accept illegal bribes or receive gifts from lobbyist,  create Taxpayer Protection Unit to investigate any companies or state contracts that abuse or commit fraud against New York citizen’s taxpayers,  and  advocate for immigration reform to help protect immigrants including refugees from being oppressed.  Also I truly appreciate on how you are a strong supporter of women’s rights to help protect them from losing healthcare and support more programs to help victims of domestic violence or victims of crime get help from legal along with law enforcement resources to help deal with their trauma.

Attorney General Schneiderman, 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 continuous strong supporter of Civil Rights including people with disabilities’ rights really inspires me to work hard on my disability.  Your work as current position as Attorney General of New York gives me motivation 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, protect the environment from pollution, and improve social justice to help protect people.

I strongly believe that you are making a great difference for society. I’m very proud on how you are working hard to support Civil Rights, push for criminal justice reform, and advocate for victim’s rights. You have inspired me to work hard on my disability and to continue to learn different subjects especially history and social justice. I was wondering if you could please share with me what it is like being NY Attorney General and give me some advice about working hard on my disability. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, making a great impact on society including the criminal justice reform, and inspiring me. Please continue to advocate for common sense ideas.
