Headshot of Kacie Lucchini Butcher

I am a public historian. My work is dedicated to building empathy, helping communities write their history, and to advancing social justice and social equity.

I have worked in museums and for community organizations, helping communities reclaim their narratives through collaborative public history projects. I have experience engaging marginalized communities through historical partnerships, creating and sustaining community-centered archives, and producing historical research that foregrounds social justice. My previous projects have focused on how history is connected to the present, in efforts to explore/question systems of inequity and oppression.
