The Gravel Institute was founded in 2020 to carry on the life’s work of Mike Gravel (1930-2021), a prominent U.S. Senator, author, and advocate for peace and democracy.
We are building an institution of progressive popular education focused on the central place people learn today – the internet.
With short, high-quality, educational videos that explains politics, economics, and history from a progressive perspective in a way that is digestible and appealing for the lay person, we strive to fight the right’s online propaganda machine on its own turf while spreading progressive ideas to new audiences.
Our short explainers counter political misinformation and promote progressive ideas in a digestible and creative way that makes people want to watch – and be persuaded.
