Josh Healey


Josh Healey is an award-winning writer, performer, and creative activist. Fusing his distinct storytelling style with a subversive humor and fiery love for justice, Healey is a regular performer on NPR’s Snap Judgment. He has performed and led workshops at UC-Berkeley, Harvard, and over 200 colleges, high schools, and conferences across the country.

As program director for Youth Speaks, Healey spearheaded spoken word and youth empowerment programs across the Bay Area and the country. He helped coordinate two national projects that combined creative storytelling and environmental activism: Life is Living, a series of eco-equity hip-hop festivals that started in Oakland, and Brave New Voices: Speak Green, a partnership with Robert Redford’s Sundance Institute that amplified the voices of the nation’s top youth poets in the green movement. A recipient of the Mario Savio Young Activist Award, Healey believes in free speech and practices it to the fullest. Beginning this year, he is excited to work with Movement Generation, using art and creativity to lift up key stories of the ecological justice movement in the Bay Area and beyond.

Born and raised in Washington DC, Healey lives in Oakland. [1]

He is the son of Richard Healey and Debbie Goldman.
