My name is Matt Winick, an Asian American from Ann Arbor, Michigan and I have a strong interest in learning history, social justice, and criminal justice reform. In these subjects, I like to learn the need for civil rights to be stronger to reduce discrimination, have criminal justice reform to help protect people’s rights while reduce crime, and many others. U.S. District Judge Wang, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as U.S. District Judge of the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado, your role as an Asian American in the community, and your work on criminal justice reform.
When you served as President of the Asian Pacific American Bar Association of Colorado, I like on how you used your role to help advocate for Asian Americans’ rights including Asian Americans with disabilities’ rights, work with other law organizations to help recruit Asian Americans to get access to an internship in law or better access to an education law school, and heavily express the need for legislation to help protect Asian Americans from hate crime. In January 2022, I liked on how you accepted President Biden to nominate you to serve on the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado to help him improve the judicial system. In July 2022, I was amazed on how you made history on becoming the first Asian American woman to serve on the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado. In your current role as U.S. District Judge of U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado, I truly appreciate on how you are a strong supporter of civil rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, pushing for strict sentencing for people who commit hate-crime to help protect minorities including people who are different, and expressing the need for civil rights to be stronger to reduce discrimination. Supporting drug treatment programs to help drug users get the care they need to reduce drug abuse, working with the court system to improve programs to help victims of crime or victims of domestic violence get help on dealing with their trauma, and expressing with the need for funds to help improve DNA testing including forensic science to help solve evidence efficiently while reduce sending an innocent person to jail is common sense for criminal justice reform. Another thing that I like about your work in the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado is how you are a strong supporter of civil liberties like the fourth amendment to help protect people’s rights from unreasonable searches. Also I like on how you are an advocate for the need for ethics reform to reduce police misconduct and support the idea of having a mental health court to help people with disabilities or people with mental health illness to get treatment. Also I like on how you use your role as an Asian American to help advocate including support Asian Americans rights including Asian American with disabilities’ rights, express the need for funds to help repair the Asian American community including their businesses, emphasize the need for educational awareness about Asian American culture including history, and many others.
U.S. District Judge Wang, 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. Being an Asian American with a disability is hard for me because some Asians and some Asian Americans get judgmental about me being different from them or not meeting their standards. Also your role as an Asian and being an advocate along with a supporter of Asians with disabilities’ rights and Asian Americans with disabilities’ rights gives me confidence about being an Asian American with a disability when there are challenges. Another to mention is I enjoy reading your work and ideas on criminal justice reform, how to improve the Asian American communities, and many others. Your role as current U.S. District Judge of U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado 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 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.
I strongly believe that you are making a great difference in the judicial system. I’m very appreciative on how you work hard to support civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights, expand while advocate for criminal justice reform, and many others. You truly inspire me to work hard on my disability, learn more about your career, and continue to learn different subjects. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, working hard to make a great difference, and inspiring me. If I visit Denver Colorado I would like to meet you in your chambers because you truly inspire me. Please continue to advocate for common sense ideas.
