You use a lot of great sources to back up your arguments and you point out a big problem that doesn’t get a lot of attention, except when it comes to big terrorist groups such as ISIS. However, I think we also need to discuss the oppression of other religions. Christianity is the biggest religion in the world.
I agree with you that there is injustice with the justice system and within the prison system. I recently wrote a research paper about the effects of prison and one website that helped me understand what occurs within the system is from the ASPE (https://aspe.hhs.gov/basic-report/psychological-impact-incarceration-implications-post-prison-adjustment). I think that making people aware of the injustice within prison will help you in making others aware of the injustice, especially when you talk about what adults do in prison. Overall great job, I think your letter will open the eyes of many.
This is a youth-powered social network that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It's easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other's work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it's been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
