3 k e y n o t e s p e a k e r Mike Farrell Mike Farrell was born in Saint Paul, Minnesota on February 6, One of four siblings, he was raised in Hollywood, where his father took a job as a studio carpenter. After graduating from high school, he joined the Marines and thereafter worked for two years as a private investigator. At that point Mike decided to pursue his dream of becoming an actor, launching his performing career with small roles in such films as The Graduate and The Americanization of Emily. Soon thereafter he played the part of Scott Banning on the soap opera Days of Our Lives. His most memorable acting role that of the surgeon B.J. Honeycutt on the popular television series M*A*S*H began in 1975 and ended in 1983, when the program finished its eleven-year run. Since then, Mike has used his celebrity status as a platform from which to promote a host of progressive social justice and human rights causes. Clearly his status as a recognized celebrity from his years with the well-loved show now allowed for a larger audience; but it is as a citizen rather than an actor that he feels the need to be involved. The issues he cares most deeply about are largely those involving human rights and the death penalty. I believe that no one should be executed, guilty or innocent. There are appropriate sanctions that protect society and punish wrongdoers without forcing us to stoop to the level of the least among us at his or her worst moment. Being a life-long opponent of the death penalty, Mike Farrell has debated and spoken about this issue on many occasions across the country in major public forums and the mainstream media. Trying to create a better understanding about the cruelty and injustice of the death penalty, Mike is a regular lecturer to interested audiences across the US. In his opinion, the best approach to reach a better understanding of the issue is first through the people, then the politicians. Although politicians are certainly influential, they are also mistrusted more and more. Politicians in America are notorious cowards and, for the most part, won t go out on a limb. Mike s activities in the anti death penalty movement vary from organizing and supporting campaigns to save specific individuals, educating the public through radio and television interviews and debates, speaking, writing essays and newspaper editorials, meeting with state governors and/ or government officials when appropriate, coordinating and organizing meetings and maintaining communication with other activists and organizations. Mike Farrell has been the President of Death Penalty Focus (DPF) since DPF is one of the largest non-profit organizations in the nation dedicated to the abolition of capital punishment through public education and demonstrations, grassroots and political organizing, coalition building, research, media activism and the dissemination of information about the death penalty and its alternatives. Mike has also been actively involved over the years with the American Indian Movement, the American Civil Liberties Union, the United Farm Workers Union, Amnesty International, Special Olympics, Greenpeace and many organizations dealing with spousal abuse, child abuse, veterans rights, the environment and animal welfare. Since 1979 he has been spokesperson for CONCERN/America, an international refugee aid and development organization. In this capacity he has visited refugee camps in Asia and Central America and helped with disseminating information about CONCERN/ America s work across the globe. Mike also served on the board of directors of the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty and is the former cochair of the California Committee of Human Rights Watch. His autobiography, Just Call Me Mike: A Journey to Actor and Activist, was just recently published.
