Mike Farrell the activist:
Long before M*A*S*H was a household word, Mike Farrell was involved in issues that were of concern to him. This involvement stems from his belief that being a responsible citizen means being willing to see conditions improve for the ultimate benefit of all.
Clearly his status as a recognized celebrity from his years with the well-loved show allow now for a larger audience, but it is as citizen rather than actor that he feels the need to be involved.
The issues are largely those involving human rights and the death penalty. But Mike is also known to speak out against local injustices, animal rights, environmental issues, etc.
The following three sections give a clear overview of Mike's work concerning the issues.
