Dear Supervisor Chan,
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 for civil rights to be stronger to reduce discrimination, protect the environment from pollution, expand on social justice to improve communities, and many others. Supervisor Chan, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as Member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisor from the 1st district to be very inspiring to me.
In your current role as Member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisor from the 1st district, I truly appreciate on how you are a strong supporter of civil rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, supporting women including minorities businesses to help them compete in the economy, and working with other members of Board of Supervisors to expand on laws to combat against hate crime to help protect minorities including people who are different. On the economy, I liked on how you support expansion of jobs training programs to help train youth including workers to develop or improve on work skills to help them prepare for the work force, worked with other members of Board of Supervisors to provide funds to local businesses including small businesses along with restaurants to help them survive financially during the pandemic while provide safety tools to them, and heavily advocate for the need to raise the minimum wage to help assist minimum wage workers afford to live. Supporting funds for renewable energy resources to help reduce addiction to oil with gas, encouraging businesses including industries to use energy efficient products to help reduce high energy cost while reduce pollution, and providing funds to improve city services to help clean parks including water resources to make them safe for people to use is common sense to help protect the environment. On education, I really like on how you support funds to expand on special education to help students with disabilities to get accommodations they need to learn, work on providing laptops to students who come from low income families to help them get access to remote learning due to the pandemic, and push for more tutoring services to assist students on learning assignments or other school work. Another thing that I like about your work as Member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisor from the 1st district is how you support funds to help restore historical sites including attractions to make learning a better tool while improve tourism, work with non profit organizations to help people who are low income or who are homeless or people who struggle during the covid-19 pandemic get food or other essential services, and heavily express the need for ethics laws to reduce police misconduct or unreasonable police brutality like police cameras including allowing social workers to attend emergency calls. Also I like on how you use your role as an Asian American to help the Asian American community by advocating for Asian Americans including Asian American with disabilities’ rights, supporting funds to help repair the Asian American community, working with the Asian American community to help restore or preserve their history, and supporting educational awareness to help educate people about Asian American culture.
Supervisor Chen, , 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 to some Asians including some Asian Americans get judgmental about me having disability and how they believe that I don’t meet their standards. Your role as an Asian American and supporting along with advocating for Asian American with disabilities’ rights helps give me some confidence about being an Asian American when I face different challenges. Your role as current Member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisor from the 1st district gives me motivation to gives me 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, improve social justice to make communities a better place, and many others. Also I have enjoyed visiting San Francisco where I got to explore Chinatown including Chinese Historical Society Museum to learn on how Chinese American history play a role in society, explore the Presidio of San Francisco to explore the park while see the Golden Gate Bridge, visit the Walt Disney museum to learn about Walt Disney’s life including his work, and Asian Art Museum to understand how Asian Art play a role in history including how it shaped culture.
I strongly believe that you are making a great difference in society. I’m very proud on how you are working hard to support civil rights, protect the environment, find ways to advocate along with improve social justice, and many others. You truly inspire me to work hard on my disability, learn more about your work, try to be confident about being an Asian American when there are challenges, and be motivated to continue to learn different subjects.
