Dear U.S. Attorney Estrada,
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. U.S. Attorney Estrada, the main reason I’m writing you a letter is to explain how I find your work as U.S. Attorney for the Central District of California to be very inspiring to me.
In your current role as U.S. Attorney for the Central District of California, I truly appreciate on how you are a strong supporter of civil rights by advocating for people with disabilities’ rights, prosecuting people who commit hate crimes on people who are different, and expanding on investigations into places that practice different forms of discrimination on disability, minorities, women, and people with different sexual orientation. Supporting drug treatment programs to help drug users get the care they need to reduce drug abuse, expanding on resources to help victims of crime or victims of domestic violence get the help on dealing with their trauma, and advocating with pushing for funds to improve DNA testing including forensic science to help solve evidence including 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 work to implement wrongful conviction unit to investigate cases that had wrongfully convicted people of a crime that they didn’t commit, created an educational awareness to help educate people including the Office of the U.S. Attorney about mental health, advocated for community policing to help law enforcement engage with the community to improve relations, and supported community service for non-violent offenders or non violent juveniles get rehabilitation to reduce re-offending. Another thing that I like about your work as U.S. Attorney for the Central District of California is how you implement strategies to help provide people with mental health to get help instead of strict sentencing, prosecuted after public officials who are corrupt or accepted illegal bribes, went after industries that illegally polluted the environment or violated environmental protection laws, and take away weapons from people who have a domestic violence record. Supporting educational awareness programs to help educate youth including people about the need to reduce bullying, gun violence, sexual assault, and drug abuse are great ways to help educate people.
U.S. Attorney Estrada, 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. Your role as U.S. Attorney for the Central District of California helps give me motivation to continue to learn history, criminal justice reform 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, push for criminal justice reform to help protect people’s rights while reduce crime, and many others. I have enjoyed visiting Los Angeles a few times where I got to explore The Chinese American Museum to learn about the history of the Chinese Americans how they played a role in society, the Broad art museum to explore modern art, the Grammy Museum to understand how music played a role in society including learning about different music artists.
I strongly believe that you are making a great difference. I’m very proud on how you are working 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 work, and continue to visit Los Angeles. If I visit Los Angeles, I would like to meet you because you inspire me. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter, making a great difference, and inspiring me. Please continue to advocate for common sense ideas.
