Amy Julia Harris



Amy Julia Harris is a reporter for Reveal, covering vulnerable communities. Harris was a Livingston Award for Young Journalists finalists for her investigation into the lack of government oversight of religious-based day cares, which led to tragedies for children in Alabama and elsewhere. She uncovered widespread squalor in a public housing complex in the San Francisco Bay Area and traced it back to mismanagement and fraud in the troubled public housing agency. Before joining Reveal, Harris was an education reporter at The Charleston Gazette in West Virginia, where she exposed widespread failures at a now-shuttered private college that won a statewide investigative reporting award. She has also written enterprise stories for The Seattle Times, Half Moon Bay Review, and Campaigns and Elections Politics Magazine. Harris is based in Reveal's Emeryville, California offices.
