“Coming Together: Standing Up to Racism”, a town hall for kids and families
CNN partnered with “Sesame Street” for a special town hall about racism, giving both kids and parents an opportunity to explore the current moment the nation is living through and to understand how these issues affect people.
“Coming Together: Standing Up To Racism” aired the morning of Saturday, June 6, and left no stone unturned — discussing everything from how to fight racism when you see it and who to call when police officers are being unsafe.
The hour-long program featured “Sesame Street” characters like Elmo, Abby Cadabby and Rosita. Together, they — along with experts — answered questions submitted by families.
The event was moderated by CNN political commentator Van Jones, CNN anchor and national correspondent Erica Hill, and Big Bird.
