Targeting cultural institutions will create awareness of the necessity of responsible AI development and facilitate economic and resource redistribution in society.

## Story Written in the First Person Perspective

When I first learned about the potential risks of uncontrolled AI development, I was shocked by the lack of regulations and ethical guidelines in place. My concern turned into motivation as I set out to challenge the status quo and demand accountability for the development of potentially harmful AI technologies.

Together, with a group of passionate individuals, we created AI Justice. From day one, we focused on targeting influential cultural institutions, using legal action to expose and challenge unethical AI development practices. We experienced an overwhelming outpouring of support from the public, ethical AI developers, and social organizations.

As momentum for the campaign grew, governments and policy makers took notice. Our petition gained national attention, inspiring the introduction of new legislation promoting responsible AI development and equitable economic and resource distribution. We were proud to witness AI Justice playing an instrumental role in advocating for a safer and fairer society.

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

Opponents may argue that AI Justice stifles innovation and hinders technological progress. They might attempt to discredit the campaign by portraying it as anti-technology, or launch counter PR campaigns to protect the interests of those benefiting from uncontrolled AI development.

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

Activists should emphasize the distinction between responsible AI development and uncontrolled development. They should advocate for ethical AI practices that benefit everyone, rather than just a select few. By consistently providing evidence of the perils of uncontrolled AI development and demonstrating the positive impact of responsible practices, activists can counter opponents' attempts to derail the campaign.
