Los Angeles, CA, October 23, 2015 /PressReleasePing/ - Best known for his eight years on M*A*S*H and five seasons on Providence, Mike Farrell will be speaking at Westwood United Methodist Church on the subject of "People of Faith Abolishing the Death Penalty" on Sunday, November 1st, 2015, at 11:30am.

"Westwood UMC is known as a safe place to discuss challenging issues of faith, and we are excited to have Mike join us once again to share his unique perspectives," commented Rev. John Woodall, Senior Pastor. "This is a great opportunity to learn from someone who has spent the greater part of his life addressing the death penalty."

A life-long opponent of the death penalty, Farrell has "seen too many death rows." President of the board of Death Penalty Focus since 1994, he speaks, debates, writes extensively and engages in campaigns across the country in opposition to state killing. He is currently involved in an international effort in support of a worldwide moratorium on the death penalty.

Alongside his work as an actor, director, and producer, Farrell has embarked on a long-time effort of activism and social awareness often focused on the issues surrounding the death penalty. He has traveled the world for the last 30 years as part of prominent international human rights and peace delegations. This work led to his helping establish the Southern California Committee of Human Rights Watch, where he served for 10 years as co-chair. A social justice advocate, he served for three years as a member of the State of California?s Commission on Judicial Performance.
Admission and parking are free of charge.
