The Chrysalis Foundation announced that the speaker for its annual Inspired event will be Rachael Denhollander. Denhollander is a former gymnast and was the first woman to publicly accuse USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University doctor Larry Nassar of sexual assault in 2016. Her experience is perhaps best known through the Netflix documentary “Athlete A,” which chronicles the story of how Indianapolis Star reporters, gymnasts and legal teams put Nassar behind bars while exposing decades of abuse at USA Gymnastics. Nassar was sentenced to 175 years in prison in 2017. Chrysalis’ Inspired event is its annual fundraising event, and has featured speakers including Angela Davis, Dolores Huerta, Laura Ling and Mae Jemison. The event will be held on Oct. 31. More information will be available in the coming months.
