Join us for our pre-concert panel in Berkeley on April 6, 2024 at 3:00 pm.

What do radical movements have in common? What are the challenges to sustaining them? What are the opportunities for growth and transformation?

Harvey Weinstein Survivor and global #MeToo activist Rowena Chiu and climate justice activist Dr. Ambrose Carroll from the Green The Church initiative will explore the essence of affecting radical change.

About the Panelists

Rowena Chiu

Harvey Weinstein Survivor & #MeToo Activist & Advocate

A former assistant to Harvey Weinstein, she was sexually assaulted by him in 1998 at the Venice Film Festival and was coerced into signing a non-disclosure agreement (NDA), which silenced her for over twenty years. In 2017, a New York Times journalist came to her home and doorstepped her husband of over a decade, revealing information about the assault and NDA. Rowena was featured in the subsequent NYT investigation, but she insisted on remaining anonymous. In 2019, she finally broke her story on the NBC Today Show, live in front of three million viewers. Rowena's story has featured in both the book and the movie, SHE SAID. She has given over 700 media interviews across four continents, and has testified at the House of Commons, the Massachusetts State House, and the State of The Union. She is writing a memoir, a novel, and a screenplay, in addition to working as a global #MeToo activist, advocating for the rights of those who are oppressed or voiceless, in churches, schools, universities and workplaces around the world.

Ambrose Carroll

Climate & Environmental Justice Consultant for the Black Church World Wide

Ambrose Carroll serves as the Founder and Senior Pastor of Renewal Worship Center and is the CEO of Green The Church, the largest repository and catalyst for environmental and sustainability practices of the black church world wide. His new project, "The Ambassador's Institute," (AI) makes it easier for environmental and sustainability organizations to practice equity and inclusion. Ambrose helps companies access the black community and communities of color by providing co-created video training labs that help heighten the level of cultural sensibility in those companies and connects them with community leaders and decision makers for further collaboration. AI also helps local congregations to learn more about the environmental movement and to partner and engage with others. Dr. Carroll and the Green The Church initiative were profiled in a piece in 2019 detailing how Black churches are mobilizing nationwide to combat climate change and pollution for a more sustainable future.
