John Legend and Sesame Street Raise Awareness of Kids Coping with Incarcerated Parents for the Holidays

For the holidays, Sesame Street in Communities and John Legend’s FREEAMERICA program have teamed up to create a series of videos to show support for the more than 2.7 million children with incarcerated parents. The videos feature five children along with Sesame Street’s Elmo and Abby Cadabby. The children share their stories as well as some ways they plan to stay connected with their loved ones this holiday season.

Help us spread this message of support to children around the country by sharing the video on your social media.
