Healing Histories Project

Support our Work

Please help us to continue creating relevant popular education tools, updating the COVID timeline and to finally publish the larger timeline covering 500+ years of the Medical Industrial Complex (MIC) that is the heart of our work.

If you intend to use this timeline and curriculum and you are able to, we ask that you consider making a donation to support our labor and love.  We have a vision to grow this and, as you are able, we need your support to do that.

We have been working on the larger timeline for over ten years. We have been working together without funding for most of that time. This timeline is an offering, a prayer, a blessing, a spell, a belief that if we tell the truth, if we name the horrific and untenable, and if we do this with our arms linked, with care and attention for the impact these true stories, these telling of real people’s lives, have on each other, that then we can imagine, we can become something other than what this history assumes we are. This has been a work of our hearts, including our grief, our rage and our hope.

  • We would love your support to maintain and regularly update this COVID-19 timeline.
  • We would love your support to complete the larger primary timeline. That timeline is over 40 times as large as the COVID-19 timeline. It includes the relationship between the pharmaceutical industry and histories of philanthropy, past epidemics including those linked to first contact, and the repeating truth of racist medical research as a way to create new medical technologies. This COVID-19 timeline captures a single year. The larger timeline covers over 500.  Because of the size of this timeline, we are talking with multiple software engineers on designing a platform that will hold the intersectional complexity we are looking for.
  • Your support will also help us to keep these materials accessible and open to community feedback and additions.

If you are a large organization, including nonprofit organizations, schools and universities, public healthcare or social service site, or private corporation or healthcare facility, we ask you to consider donating between $500 and $2000 for use of this timeline and curriculum.
