The official website of Richmond Democrats still lists Jarvis is listed as an official member of the Richmond City Democratic Committee.
Plans for the “Virginia Forum” were canceled twice after threats from a local Antifa group against the organizers before ultimately taking place in an undisclosed location.
Fox News reports on The Common Club’s statement regarding the decision to cancel the event at their venue, “After careful consideration and in light of the current political climate, the leadership of the Commonwealth Club have made the difficult decision to decline hosting the event. This decision was not made lightly, but the safety and well-being of our guests and employees is our top priority, especially after recent social media posts by radical groups have targeted the event and the location.”
When the event was moved to a local Westin hotel in Richmond, Antifa members posted on social media to call and pressure the hotel. It worked and, once again, the event was canceled.

According to The Post Millennial, “The event was ultimately a success after the third venue refused to cave to the coordinated campaign attack of threats issued by Antifa and other far-left activists.”
One city transformed by leftist politics is Richmond, Va. This radicalism manifested as violent militancy where hundreds were arrested at #BLM–#Antifa riots.

In 2020, Ngo filed a civil complaint in Portland after accusing two Antifa members, John Colin Hacker and Elizabeth Renee Richter, of assault, battery, and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
ALLEGATIONS: John Colin Hacker, according to @MrAndyNgo’s complaint.
On May 7, 2019, Hacker allegedly threw an unknown liquid onto Ngo at a local gym, then forcibly robbed Ngo, taking his phone.
