The Face of Democracy in Action

Michael Nevett, Alumnus | Green Acres School


A recent alumnus of Green Acres, Michael is a dedicated community activist—a direct reflection of his time with the school and its focus on democracy in action. “I was a founding member of MoCo Students for Gun Control,” he says. “We organized a large-scale student walkout on the Capitol Lawn, and other events pushing for gun safety. I also coordinated a protest outside the Governor’s Mansion in Annapolis, accelerating gun reform in Maryland.”

“At college in Philadelphia, I founded my school’s chapter of March for Our Lives and pushed for universal background checks,” Nevett says. “I recently introduced March for Our Lives’ Pennsylvania Peace Plan, a 27-point policy platform to reduce gun violence.”

He adds: “I’ve used skills learned at Green Acres to fight for meaningful policy change.”
