New Generative AI tools are revolutionizing writing and communication. This report focuses on AI and advocacy, the act of influencing public policy and resource allocation decisions within political, economic, and social systems and institutions. This report identifies three major opportunities and accompanying risks, plus one strong recommendation for advocates considering using AI. We argue that AI can be useful for advocates, but they must be careful to center human judgment and avoid risks that could distract from their important work or even contribute to societal harms.


This public-facing report is the result of an undergraduate research collaboration, created by the Spring 2024 students of WRT302: AI and Advocacy and directed by their instructor, Dr. Matthew Salzano.
