The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s “If You See Something, Say Something®” campaign is committed to educating the American public about how to recognize and report the signs of suspicious activity. We believe everyone has a role to play in keeping our communities safe and secure. To effectively meet that mission, the Campaign must be accessible to all of the communities that we serve.
To ensure equitable access to our campaign messages and materials, DHS expanded its public awareness campaign offerings this week. For the first time, “If You See Something, Say Something” materials are now available in 10 additional languages. These expanded offerings will help provide more equitable access to public safety information, and to promote an alert and informed American public.
The new materials are available in Arabic, Chinese (Simplified), French, Haitian, Korean, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Thai, and Vietnamese and can be downloaded by the public from the translated outreach materials webpage. Each package of translated resources includes three sets of posters, two graphics for website or advertising use, and three social media graphics.
The Department encourages individuals, organizations, and local government and public safety agencies to take advantage of these new offerings and share them in their communities and on social media.
“If You See Something, Say Something®” is a national campaign that raises public awareness about the indicators of terrorism, terrorism-related crime, and domestic violent extremism, as well as the importance of reporting suspicious activity to state and local law enforcement. The Campaign regularly works with state, local, tribal and territorial partners across the country to distribute public awareness messaging throughout local communities, organizations, and on social media.
