Resources on how to talk to your kid about anti-racism

CNN / Sesame Street Racism Town Hall

CNN partnered with Sesame Street for Coming Together: Stand Up to Racism, a town hall for kids and families. Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, CNN's Van Jones and Erica Hill, and Sesame Street's Abby Cadabby teach us how to explain racism to kids by sharing a message with kids about how to make a change and reflecting on personal stories.
