Sesame Street For The Win
A previously-digital character with autism named Julia is now joining the full-time Muppet cast on Sesame Street.
Her puppeteer, Stacey Gordon, has a child with autism.
Sesame Street has long been a kind, welcoming, compassionate place.
It feels different from our country at the moment, and maybe that's why this news really resonates with us.
It also comes at a time that the Trump Administration has proposed to cut all federal funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
How to help make sure kids everywhere can see Julia

Sign a petition to save the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. CPB helps fund 1400 local public radio and TV stations, many in rural areas, so they can stay on the air and provide content like Sesame Street.
