Dear Attorney General Hood,
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, protect the environment from pollution, have criminal justice reform to help protect people’s rights while reduce crime, and many others. Attorney General Hood, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as Attorney General of Mississippi to be very inspiring to me.
In your current role as 39th Attorney General of Mississippi, I truly appreciate on how you are a strong supporter of Civil Rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, prosecuting people who commit hate-crime to help protect minorities including people who are different, and investigating public places that practice discrimination. Another thing on Civil Rights was how you prosecuted a former Klansman Edgar Killen for planning the 1964 murders of some of the non-violent protesters during the Freedom Summer. Expanding drug treatment programs to help drug-users get the care they need to reduce drug abuse, supporting more law enforcement resources to help victims of crime or victims of domestic violence get help on reducing their trauma, and pushing for more funds for forensic science including DNA testing to help solve cases efficiently while reduce sending an innocent person to jail is common sense for criminal justice reform. To improve public safety in schools, I liked on how you launched School Violence Initiative to work with teachers including school staff or administrations to find ways to reduce violence, increase educational awareness programs to teach youth including students about the need to reduce bullying including gun violence, partner with local law enforcement to combat against drugs going into schools. Another thing that I liked about your work as Attorney General of Mississippi is how you created a cybercrime unit to track down sexual offenders or combat against fraud, went after public officials that are corrupt or accepted illegal bribes, and prosecuted industries that illegally polluted the environment or water resources.
Attorney General Hood, 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. Your role as Attorney General of Mississippi gives me motivation 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. My letter is a gift to you for inspiring me and to wish you a Happy Birthday for May 15th.
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 many others. You have inspired me to work hard on my disability and to continue to learn history with social justice. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make a difference for society including the criminal justice system, and inspiring me. I wish you the best to continue to make a great difference with common sense ideas.
