Sesame Street Launches Multimedia Project for Children Who Have a Parent in Prison

Sesame Street recently launched a multimedia initiative for children who have an imprisoned parent. Entitled “Little Children, Big Challenges: Incarceration,” the initiative includes videos of Sesame Street characters discussing issues surrounding incarceration, as well as activities and guides for teachers. It may sound like an odd subject for Sesame Street, but according to a 2010 study by The Pew Charitable Trusts, more than 2.7 million American children have a parent in prison.
