ReGenesis Institute

When Kat was on the campaign trail with Tom Steyer in South Carolina, she met Harold Mitchell Jr., Executive Director of the ReGenesis Institute and currently a member of the White House Environmental Justice Advisory Council. Mitchell’s personal story of environmental injustice captured Kat’s attention, and his ability to leverage a $20,000 EPA grant into $300 million in private and public investments for economic development serves as a model for community-led solutions for investments in environmental and economic development. The ReGenesis Institute is supported by the TomKat Foundation so that Mitchell can contribute to a “learning hub” for communities that have been harmed by environmental racism.
