Dear Congresswoman Titus,
My name is Matt Winick from Ann Arbor, Michigan and I have a strong interest in learning history including 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. Congresswoman Titus, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as current Member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Nevada’s 1st District to be very inspiring to me and to explain to you what it is like having autism.
In your current role as Member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Nevada 1st District, I truly appreciate on how you are a strong supporter of civil rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, supporting funds to help women including minorities businesses to help them compete in the economy, and expressing the need to improve laws to combat against hate-crime to help protect minorities including people who are different. On people with disabilities’ rights, I like on how you are working hard to support legislation to help people with disabilities including people with autism to get treatment and express the need to make enforcement stronger to help combat against discrimination to help protect people with disabilities. On health care, I like on how you are advocating for the need to reduce high cost on prescription drug including insulin cost, supporting the idea of expanding funds for stem cell research to help combat against different diseases, and heavily continue to fight to protect health care from being weakened in order to help people with pre-existing conditions from losing it. Another thing that I like about your work in Congress is how you support funds for renewable energy projects to help reduce addiction to oil with gas while protect the environment and support the need for campaign finance reform to limit campaign contributions or dark money from lobbying groups including financial institutions in order to reduce corruption.
Congresswoman Titus, 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. Another thing that I struggle with my disability is that I have trouble afford health care to help me improve on behavior treatment or other health care related issues. The American with Disabilities Act (the ADA of 1990) helped me get an education in elementary school through my Washtenaw Community College by providing me with accommodations like extra time on exams, have a T.A. or tutor help me learn different subjects, use educational software or a recorder to help me improve on my comprehension, and many others. Even though the ADA of 1990 helped me with my disability. I still face struggles with a disability and face some discrimination in activities along with social groups. Your continuous support of civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights really inspires me to work hard on my disability. Also your role in Congress helps give me some motivation to continue to learn history including 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, protect the environment from pollution, and many others.
I strongly believe that you are making a great difference for our country. Also I’m proud on how you are working hard to support civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights, protect the environment from pollution, and many others. I wanted to say thank you for being a continuous strong supporter of people with disabilities’ rights. You have inspire me to work hard on my disability and continue to learn history including social justice. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make a great difference, and inspiring me. I wish you the best to continue to make an impact on society and I hope that we can meet to discuss more issues.
