GoFundMe Shuts Down Fundraiser by Parents Opposing Critical Race Theory

Fundraising website GoFundMe shut down a page that had been set up by parents in Loudoun County, Virginia, in opposition to the implementation of critical race theory in their children’s education, as reported by the Washington Free Beacon.

The fundraiser had been started by Scott Mineo, who is also the head of an organized group of parents called Parents Against Critical Theory (PACT). Mineo created the GoFundMe after he and other members of PACT began facing intimidation tactics from members of the school board and their supporters. A Facebook group called Anti-Racist Parents of Loudoun County began creating lists of parents who were affiliated with PACT or otherwise opposed critical race theory, as well as identifying their spouses and employers, and began advocating for censoring them.

The GoFundMe page was targeted by Loudoun County School Board Equity Committee member Charlotte McConnell, after it had raised over $4,000. McConnell publicly called for her fellow school board members to report the fundraiser. On March 25th, Mineo received an email from GoFundMe informing him that his page had been shut down due to containing “prohibited conduct.” GoFundMe did not provide any evidence that Mineo’s page violated any rules, but reaffirmed in its email that it had “sole discretion” to determine which pages it can ban.
