Takedown: Dismantling the NXIVM ‘Sex Cult’: When Moira Penza, ‘05, first read in The New York Times about a secretive group outside Albany that was branding women, she knew she had to do something. A federal prosecutor at the time, Penza launched an investigation that would result in the dismantling of NXIVM, landing leader Keith Raniere in prison for 120 years. Her talk will take listeners behind the headlines for the true story of the government’s prosecution of Raniere and his inner circle on charges including racketeering and sex trafficking.
