We have assembled an impressive library of accessible video content to introduce Hoover policy ideas to younger people in particular. PolicyEd content includes short animations, video series, and several feature-length documentary films spanning a variety of topics, from economics, national security, and health care to the environment and civics. This year we released four new series and a total of 42 videos. Since launching in late 2016, PolicyEd videos have been watched nearly 60 million times.
