Dear Chief Justice Rabner,
My name is Matt Winick 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. Associate Justice Rabner, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work when you served as 56th Attorney General of New Jersey and as current Chief Justice of New Jersey Supreme Court to be very inspiring to me.
When you served as 56th Attorney General of New Jersey from 2006-2007, I truly appreciated on how you were a strong supporter of civil rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, prosecuting people who commit hate crimes to help protect minorities including people who are different, and investigating public places that practice different forms of discrimination or violate civil rights legislation. Supporting drug treatment programs to help drug users get the care they need to reduce drug abuse, working to expand resources to help victims of crime or victims of domestic violence get help on dealing with their trauma, and pushing along with emphasizing the need for funds to improve DNA testing including forensic science to help solve evidence or cases efficiently while reduce sending an innocent person to jail is common sense for criminal justice reform. Also on criminal justice reform, I like on how you would investigate any law enforcement or people in judicial system who commit misconduct to reduce corruption and pushing for better mental health services to help people with a mental illness or who struggle with it get help instead of strict sentencing. In your current role as Chief Justice of New Jersey Supreme Court, I like on how you are a continuous strong supporter of civil rights including people with disabilities’ rights and criminal justice reform. Another thing that I like about your work as Chief Justice of New Jersey Supreme Court is how you work to expand on educational awareness about how the court system works including Constitution background, push for ethics reform to ban gifts to staff members including members of the New Jersey Supreme Court from lobbyist to reduce corruption, and advocate for more wrongful conviction units to help reduce sending innocent people to jail for a crime that they didn’t commit.
Chief Justice Rabner, 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. I also enjoyed reading some of your articles about the need for better improvements in social work, a strong need for better protection for people with disabilities’ rights, have criminal justice reform to help protect people’s rights while reduce crime, and heavily protect civil liberties from being violated. Also your role as 56th Attorney General of New Jersey and as Chief Justice of New Jersey Supreme Court gives me gives me motivation to continue to learn history including social justice. My future goal is to work in these areas to help to make civil rights 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. My letter is a gift to you for inspiring me.
