Welcome back to another episode of the #WildAboutFacts series. Today, we are taking over your feed with pictures and #trivia of one of the most alluring creatures from the #wild, the #RedPanda.

Its distinctive fur has earned this species monikers such as #Firefox, Firecat, or Fire-coloured Cat. Arguably, the #RedPanda is the only true #Panda, as the #GiantPanda, which is believed to be closely related, belongs to the #bear family.

Around half of the #RedPanda’s natural habitat lies in the Eastern #Himalayas#Nepal, #Sikkim, northern #WestBengal, #Bhutan, and #ArunachalPradesh.

Its remaining home is in northern #Myanmar and a few provinces of central #China.

#Leopards are actually the smallest among the genus of big cats. These elusive #cats prefer to hide in trees or in caves during the day.

#Leopards are not picky about their food and feed on a wide range of animals. They crouch low and sneak on their prey before attacking them.

Seems common sense to say 'People in #prison are criminals.' Actually, 'People in prison are people.' Shift from 'criminal' to 'person' could begin to undo wreckage & #racism of mass incarceration AND increase public safety.

"Prison itself may exacerbate recidivism" says DOJ.
Thinking of people in prison as criminals turns ACTS into IDENTITY. My classmate #BryanStevenson says we're all more than the worst thing we've done. DOJ research shows even those who commit crime at highest rates naturally age out of criminal behavior beginning at 35. #JustMercy
We should hold people accountable. But long prison sentences make us LESS safe, acc'g to peer-reviewed research, which is the gold standard for life/death decisions in medical care. Why not so in life/death decisions about public safety & incarceration?

Like #NathanielWoods, my friend #KennethFoster was sentenced to be killed even tho he wasn't convicted of killing. He was already in the TX Death House when Rick Perry commuted his sentence. Kenneth will serve decades for a robbery at 18, but he is still alive. #RIPNateWoods
My friend #KennethFoster was sentenced to die even tho TX admitted he didn't kill anyone. His sentence was commuted to life. Court-appointed counsel failed to present compelling evidence of innocence for #TroyDavis (GA) & #NathanielWoods (AL). They were both killed.
TX guards moved #KennethFoster to the Death House earlier than planned. Because he wasn't convicted of killing, he protested his own killing by not walking to his unjust execution. I love Kenneth. His dignity inspires me. #DeathPenalty

These are perilous times, so I'm more sober today than celebratory given the challenges ahead. But I am fully mindful of how thankful I am to lead @NAACP_LDF and to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our amazing staff, which is an honor & joy every day. #2019
#2019, for all its challenges was sweetened for me with so many special moments & experiences that inspired and lifted me. I remain determined and hopeful b/c these moments kept me encouraged, strong & joyful. Here are a few:
What an honor to start the yr sharing the MLK Day lecture w/ the great @RevDrBarber in Chicago last Jan.. But even more special was the moment of comfort we shared backstage discussing our grief. We had each lost a sibling. I did not know at the time that I would lose another.

Spread word: my student & friend #Tavares Calloway was coerced to confess to 5 murders after #Miami police told him his own family was in immediate danger unless he falsely confessed to help them flush out the real killer. He was sentenced to die. docs.google.com/document/d/e/2…
#Tavares was 19 when 11 officers interrogated him for 18 hours w/o an attorney present. Police admitted to repeatedly lying to him, saying they'd found his DNA/fingerprints at the scene.

In fact, NO PHYSICAL EVIDENCE OR EYEWITNESS ties him to the crime.
The SOLE EVIDENCE against #Tavares is a confession he signed when police told him his family was in grave & imminent danger. After 18 hrs of questioning, police knew he was protective of his family & deeply devout.
