Dear State Representative Vang,
My name is Matt Winick, an Asian American 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. Delegate Tran, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as Member of the Minnesota House of Representatives from the 40B district and your support for the Asian American community to be very inspiring to me.
In your current role as Member of the Minnesota House of Representatives from the 40B District, I truly appreciated on how you were a strong supporter of civil rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, supporting funds for women including minorities businesses to help them compete in the economy, and working with state legislature from both political parties to expand on hate-crime laws to help protect minorities including people who are different. Support expanding on job-training programs to help train youth including workers to develop work-skills to help develop with improve on their job-skills to help prepare for the workforce and advocating for the need to raise the minimum wage to help assist minimum wage workers afford to live is common sense to improve the economy. Supporting funds for renewable energy resources to help reduce addiction to oil with gas, encouraging businesses to use energy-efficient products to help reduce high energy cost while reduce pollution, and working with state legislature to expand funds to improve government services along with city services to help clean parks including water resources are great ways to help protect the environment. On education, I like on how you support funds to help improve special education to help students with disabilities get accommodations they need to learn, implement literacy programs to help people including students develop reading skill or improve on their comprehension, and push for after school programs to provide students with help on their assignments from tutors. Another thing that I like about your work in the Minnesota state legislature is how you advocate for the need for affordable housing to help people who are low-income or people who can’t afford get housing, push for more services to help the homeless people get supplies they need, and express with support the need for immigration reform to help protect immigrants including refugees from being oppressed. Besides your work in the Minnesota state legislature, like on how you use your role as an Asian American to advocate for Asian American rights including Asian American with disabilities’ rights, express the need for more educational awareness to help educate people about Asian American culture with history, and support the idea of more funds to help improve or repair the Asian American communities.
State Representative Vang, 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 being an Asian American with a disability is difficult for me due some Asians including some Asian Americans tease me along with get judgmental about me being different or not meeting their standards. Your role as an Asian American on advocating for Asian American with disabilities’ rights gives me some confidence about being an Asian American when I face challenges. Your current role as Member of the Minnesota House of Representatives from the 40B District gives 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. I’m very proud on how you are working hard to support civil rights, protect the environment, advocate for social justice, and many others. You have inspire me to work hard on my disability, continue to learn history including social justice, and be confident about being an Asian American when I face challenges. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make a great difference, and inspiring me. Please continue to advocate for common sense ideas.
