Nadya also spoke about the nearly two years she was incarcerated after staging a symbolic protest in a Moscow church. The dire conditions she experienced in the prison camps led her to lobby for prison reform in Russia. Since her release in 2013, she and bandmate Masha Alyokhina launched a prisoners' rights organization that has been instrumental in bringing attention to the plight of Russian prisoners. Following her conversation on stage, Nadya answered questions from the audience and spoke personally with students. The sold-out event drew students, faculty, deans, and entire classes. At one point, Nadya joked, "I am not a prophet."
