On Wednesday, the organization’s National Grassroots Director, Thomas Hern, received an email from Eventbrite alerting him of the website’s “Community Guidelines,” as well as listing the titles of several events ACT had posted to the website, informing the director that the events had been “removed” for violating the guidelines.
“Eventbrite does not permit on our platform content or organizations that promote or encourage hate, violence, or harassment towards others and/or oneself,” stated the email, adding that the website prohibits the promotion of hate or harassment based on “race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, nationality, veteran status, sexual orientation, or gender identity.”
“We have determined that the events in question violate our Community Guidelines and are therefore not permitted on the Eventbrite platform,” added the ticketing website in its email, “As a result, your event listings have been removed.”
The following day, Hern received a second email informing him that the organization’s Eventbrite account had been banned from the platform altogether.
ACT has been banned from the event platform just one week after a former Nancy Pelosi intern released a Roll Call article accusing the organization of having ties with “Neo-Nazis” after ACT had called out Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) for her antisemitic statements.
