## Story Written in the First Person Perspective

As the organizer of AI Alert, I witnessed firsthand the growing concerns about AI existential risks in my community. After attending a town hall meeting, I decided to create a campaign that would bring people together to fight for responsible AI governance.

The synchronized march across multiple cities was a success. Local media channels picked up our story, and thousands of people joined us in the streets, demanding responsible AI policies. Eventually, our efforts started making a difference. Local governments began to review their AI strategies and implement new regulations to ensure ethical development and use of AI technologies.

## How Will Opponents to This Campaign Try to Stop It

Opponents to this campaign, including AI development companies and those benefitting from lax regulations, may attempt to discredit the campaign’s goals, downplay the risks associated with AI, or argue against regulation that may hinder innovation.

## How Should Activists Respond to Opponent’s Attempts to Stop It

Activists should counter these arguments by highlighting the importance of ethical and responsible AI development, emphasizing the potential consequences of unregulated AI advancements, and promoting fact-based evidence and expert opinions on the risks associated with AI.

## What Are the Steps Necessary to Launch the Campaign

  1. Research and identify cities with active AI communities or local governments considering AI policies.
  2. Create a cohesive campaign message, social media accounts, and a website for centralized information and march registration.
  3. Reach out to AI safety experts, influencers, and organizations to secure endorsements and support.

  5. Promote the campaign through traditional and social media, mobilizing grassroots support.
  6. Execute the synchronized marches, document the events, and amplify the campaign message through ongoing engagement with supporters and local governments.
