Journee Harris joined the Design Trust in September 2021 as an Equitable Public Space Fellow. Her love for public spaces began in Jacksonville, FL and grew in Washington, DC – the two cities she calls home. Prior to joining the Design Trust, Journee served as the Interpretative Development Assistant Intern for the Harriet Tubman National Historical Park and as the We Design Program Coordinator for Design Museum Everywhere. She is also the founder and host of At Home the Podcast, a podcast that explores the concept of "home" though a collection of interviews and stories.
As a writer, researcher and experienced podcaster, Journee centers honest narratives in all of her work. She believes the hearing and telling of stories can be a tool for community engagement, connecting generations and preserving cultural heritage.
Journee holds a B.S. in Psychology from Howard University and will be pursuing a Master’s in Urban Planning after her fellowship year.
