UnidosUS Comments to U.S. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) AI Memorandum

UnidosUS welcomed the draft guidance as a positive step towards ethical governance of AI but believes it is essential to create mechanisms for community engagement, to protect civil liberties and to deepen investment in inclusive participation.

New advanced AI technologies hold promise to expand opportunities, but also risk bias, unfairness, and opaque decision-making, and could perpetuate inequality at scale. Years of harms show that unchecked uses of decision algorithms lead to discrimination by race, gender, and other factors. Our vision has three pillars—Values, Voice, and Investment. We propose them as an interrelated approach to governance. Honoring our shared values means acknowledging AI’s current limitations and integrating strong ethical guardrails. Voice centers the need to create formal roles and power for impacted groups. Investment would grow public capacity to participate in shaping technology and sharing in the prosperity it can bring to every community.
