For the last 50 years, Sesame Street has been a unique, trusted, and educational force for children and is now the longest-running children’s show in American television history.
Sesame Street has helped children around the world to grow smarter, stronger and kinder. With a curriculum that evolves to meet the needs of every new generation, it is now a force for good in more than 70 languages and 150 countries.
Sesame Street continues to innovate and bring critical early learning to generations through the beloved and iconic Muppets of
Sesame Street, including Big Bird, Cookie Monster, Bert and Ernie, and Elmo.
Sesame Workshop has also created extensive resources for military families, children with autism, and families impacted by food insecurity, family homelessness, parental substance abuse, and trauma, among others. It has a significant global reach helping
to bring “Muppet Diplomacy” to address international challenges including HIV/AIDS, gender equity and displaced refugee populations. Sesame Workshop has touched the lives of millions of people in every Congressional District across the country and the world.
Please help us honor the creators, writers, and characters that have made a difference to countless children. To cosponsor H.Res. 540, please contact
