Our friends at Sesame Street are partnering with CNN to broadcast  family-friendly town hall events . This all-new 60-minute special “Coming Together: Standing Up to Racism,” will air TODAY Saturday, June 6, at 10 a.m. ET.

The show will talk to kids about racism, the recent nationwide protests, embracing diversity and being more empathetic and understanding. Big Bird will join CNN commentator Van Jones and CNN anchor and national correspondent Erica Hill to moderate the event. They will be joined by "Sesame Street" characters -- including Elmo, Abby Cadabby and Rosita -- and other experts answering questions submitted by families.
