Presente.org has taken the lead in a campaign that we support 100%:
This is what the petition says:
Tell Recording Academy President Neil Portnow:
It is unacceptable for the Grammys to cease to honor categories of music that are an important part of our heritage and culture.
We're joining musicians like Carlos Santana, Ruben Blades and Bobby Sanabria in demanding that the Recording Academy reinstate awards that are received predominantly by musicians of color and which are relied upon by thousands of music professionals for their livelihood.
Please work to reinstate these awards as soon as possible.
