BROWN RIBBONS AT THE OSCARS THIS WEEKEND

"Attendees at the 88th annual Oscars are being asked to wear a new colored ribbon."

Eva Longoria's Brown Ribbon Campaign

"In past Oscar ceremonies, attendees have worn colored ribbons to outwardly show their support for various causes, including red ribbons to raise consciousness about AIDS, pink ribbons for breast cancer and black ribbons honoring the tragic death of Sarah Jones.

This year, a new color is entering the rainbow of Hollywood causes: Eva Longoria is supporting the Brown Ribbon Campaign, which asks those attending Sunday's ceremony to wear brown ribbons to bring awareness to the lack of Latino representation in films."

I'm guessing Ruben Blades will support this campaign too.  I'm hope many stars of many varying hues will.
