Dear Attorney General Shapiro,
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 have criminal justice reform to help protect people’s rights while reduce crime. Attorney General Shapiro, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as 50th Attorney General of Pennsylvania to be very inspiring to me.
In your current role as 50th Attorney General of Pennsylvania, 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 violate Civil Rights legislation or practice any forms of discrimination. Supporting drug treatment programs to help drug-users get the care they need to reduce drug-abuse, working with law enforcement including the Office of the Attorney General to expand resources to help victims of crime or victims of domestic violence get help on dealing with their trauma, and advocating for the need for funds for DNA testing including forensic science to help reduce sending an innocent person to jail while solve cases with evidence efficiently is common sense for criminal justice reform. Putting a ban on gifts to staff members of the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General from lobbyist to reduce corruption and requiring staff members to go through ethics training to help educate themselves about ethics laws including how to combat against corruption is common sense to reform the Attorney General office. Another thing that I like about your work as Attorney General is how you went after public officials that are corrupt or accept illegal bribes to reduce corruption in government, prosecuted industries including oil with gas industries that polluted the environment including water resources or violated environmental protection laws to help reduce pollution while improve public health, expressed the need for immigration reform to help protect immigrants including refugees from being oppressed, and teamed up with hospitals including retirement communities to find ways to protect elders along with patients from abuse.
Attorney General Shapiro, 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 I enjoy visiting Pennsylvania a few times to see some sites like taking the tour of Hersey Chocolate tour to learn about how they make chocolate along with Milton Hershey’s life, The Betsy Ross Museum to learn about Ms. Ross’s work on the American Flag, The National Constitution Center to learn about the U.S. Constitution along with the importance of protecting our basic fundamental civil liberties, and many others. Your role as Attorney General of Pennsylvania 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.
I strongly believe that you are working hard to make a great difference as Attorney General of Pennsylvania. 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 truly inspire me to work hard on my disability and be motivated to continue to learn history including social justice. Also your work on making Pennsylvania a better place helps give me more motivation to visit the state and see some sites. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to improve society, and inspiring me. I wish you the best to continue to push for common sense ideas.
