Collaborative Problem-Solving and ReGenesis Case Study

This tool is a case study on the city of Spartanburg, South Carolina, a primarily minority-populated city which was found to be experiencing higher levels of health issues due to chemical plants and other polluting factors in the area. This case study examines how ReGenesis, a community-based organization, used stakeholder leveraging to address government and local officials and expose the inequity and injustice in Spartanburg.

This tool was contributed by Christian Braneon and Delaney Rickles. The affiliated case study, ReGenesis—A Practical Application of the CPS Model is taken from Chapter 4 of EPA’s Environmental Justice Collaborative Problem-Solving Model (2008).
