An informed public plays a critical role in keeping our communities safe. September 25 is “If You See Something, Say Something®” Awareness Day, also known as #SeeSayDay. “If You See Something, Say Something” is more than just a slogan; it’s how we protect our communities.
On September 25, we encourage you to participate in #SeeSayDay on social media. #SeeSay Day will help to raise awareness about the importance of recognizing and reporting suspicious activity.
Anyone can participate in SeeSay Day by using #SeeSayDay and #WhyISeeSay on social media on or before September 25 to raise awareness about the importance of recognizing and reporting suspicious activity.
Here’s how you can participate in #SeeSay Day this Saturday, September 25th:
- Share why YOU “See Say” on or before Saturday, September 25: Share why you “See Say” on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram using #WhyISeeSay and #SeeSayDay.
- Learn the indicators of suspicious activity and how to report it in your state. Share with your friends, family, and others in your network.
- Organize a group photo: Group photos don’t have to be in person. Download this bubble sign, write down why you SeeSay, and take a photo with your friends, colleagues, or other members of your community while hosting your virtual event. Don’t forget to share on social media using #WhyISeeSay and #SeeSayDay.
- Follow CDC and jurisdictional COVID-19 guidance before coordinating in-person activities
- Test your awareness by watching the “The Challenge” PSA series. Find the videos at www.dhs.gov/TheChallenge. Share the videos on social media and challenge your network to test their awareness, too.
To empower and educate Americans about suspicious activity and how the report it, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s “If You See Something, Say Something®” campaign works with state, local, tribal and territorial partners across the country year-round to raise awareness and share resources. This year, DHS expanded its public awareness campaign offerings to ensure equitable access to campaign messages and materials.
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.
“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.
