Two members of the Russian arts collective Pussy Riot, Maria Alyokhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, visited Purchase this morning to discuss prison conditions in Russia and the United States with School of Liberal Arts and Sciences Dean Suzanne Kessler and members of the organization Rehabilitation Through the Arts.

The two had been imprisoned for their protest activities in Moscow and wanted to discuss the US prison system and how to implement rehabilitation programs inside.
