Al Chesley Former football star Al Chesley--who played for the Philadelphia Eagles and the Chicago Bears, and in Super Bowl XV--will close day III of the conference with a talk about the sexual abuse he experienced as a 13-year-old from a police officer in his Washington, DC, neighborhood. Ashamed of the repeated abuse, Chesley remained silent for years but began sharing his story in 2008. He has advocated for legislation in Delaware, Maryland, Arizona, and Virginia to give greater rights and remedies to victims of child sexual abuse. Since his retirement from the NFL, Chesley has also been working with at-risk youth in Washington and Pittsburgh, with outreach groups such as Each One Reach One.

It sounds simple but for victims of child sexual abuse (CSA), like former Eagles' linebacker Al Chesley, it can take thirty years, for others a lifetime. Until survivors can find peace, they often mask their suffering with aggression, self doubt, drugs, bad relationships and other destructive behaviors. Overcoming this and moving from victim to survivor is the focus of Invisible Scars, a documentary being co-produced by Johnna Janis and features the stories of Al, Andrew Willis, Johnna herself and many others.
Pro Player Insiders Melissa Mahler hosted a roundtable discussion with Johnna,Al and one of New York's original "madmen" Andrew Willis (CEO Stop Abuse Campaign) to discuss their "invisible scars" and how they are helping to bring about healing and end child sexual abuse.
