Is the comma before 'something' in this sentence redundant? if yes why? If no why is it correct?

List five occasions over the past few months when you have written to someone in an attempt to persuade them to do, or not to do, something.
Thanks

@Ponyy,
It is correct.
Commas may be used to set off contrasting phrases.

@Ponyy,
With your usage here, the commas are an equivalent of putting a parenthesis around the phrase...to set it off from the rest.
