Healing Histories Project

Work with us

(Short Term Contract) Project Manager for Healing Histories Project (HHP)

The Healing Histories Project is made up of healers, medical practitioners, organizers, media makers, cultural and memory workers who believe that all deserve care and support during times of crisis, vulnerability & resistance. We come together to inform and shape a vision for collective care and safety while integrating models of wellness that seek to transform and intervene on medical violence, harms, and abuses rooted in racism and capitalism. We are engaging individuals, communities and institutions to remember these abuses and harms by catalyzing research, action and movement-building strategies. We do this through the creation of popular education tools, workshop curriculum, cultural and political events and more. 

We are a multiracial intergenerational and multi-ability team that centers Black, Indigenous, people of color, people with disabilities and others targeted by eugenecist strategies in our work.

The Healing Histories Project works in solidarity with many health and healing practitioners/workers by holding with dignity and respect the lives and communities they care for and by disrupting abuses of the state.  The release of this COVID-19 Timeline is our first offering. In addition to the COVID timeline, HHP has  been working for 11 years on compiling data related to 500+ years of the Medical Industrial Complex. This data currently exists in an excel spreadsheet.
