How would I make a static class in ASP.NET webforms that redirects the User to a specific page if member is not active? (c#)

I can't figure out how to turn the following code into a static class for use in all my pages.

var valDRecord = oe.account_profiles.Where(y => y.membership_number == User.Identity.Name).First();
if ( == false)

Open in new window

This is the code in my class:
Can't figure out how to get the user.Identity.Name to work.
public class notActive
   public static void redirect()
        AMEMEntities2 h = new AMEMEntities2();

        var valDRecord = h.account_profiles.Where(y => y.membership_number == User.Identity.Name).First();
        if ( == false)


Open in new window

Is the value coming back as blank?  What authentication are you working with?  If you are using Forms Authentication, you would need a different approach.
You just need to reference the HttpContext.Current instance like you're doing with the Response redirect:
