This weekend, CNN and Sesame Street are teaming up for a program called “Coming Together: Standing Up to Racism” to talk to kids about racism, diversity, and the nationwide protests that have broken out after a police officer killed George Floyd. The 60-minute special will take the form of a town hall, where experts—and Sesame Street Muppets, including Elmo, Abby Cadabby, and Rosita—respond to questions sent in by viewers beforehand. If you have a question you’d like them to consider answering, you can fill out the digital form below the CNN article here.
