Too many corporations think about marketing to the 55 million strong Latino Market during Hispanic Heritage month or try on Cinco de Mayo.

However, these companies have put their money where their mouth is for Latino market. We'd like to call them our top "Three Amigos" aka The Three Caballeros 1944
AT&T “Between Two Worlds”
AT&T’s #BetweenTwoWorlds is the Hispanic movement in their expansive social media campaign #TheMobileMovement, which launched earlier this year. The company began the Hispanic operation in July 2014 as an opportunity to connect and engage bicultural Latinos, particularly digital-savvy millennials.
#BetweenTwoWorlds focuses on the lives of young acculturated Hispanics between their teens and mid-30s, who easily identify with both mainstream U.S. culture and their Latino background. Accompanying the #TheMobileMovement is a Tumblr page similarly featuring Spanglish posts. The two hashtags can also be found on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

Dunkin Donuts “Dunkin' Latino”
As of June 2014, Dunkin’ Donuts launched its Latino Twitter page, looking to cater to the company’s Spanish speakers. Last year, Dunkin’ Donuts also claimed to be the first national coffee retailer to make its website, mobile, and Facebook platforms available in Spanish and English.
With the social media campaign launch, there was a brief sweepstakes. Fans could follow @DunkinLatino and use the hashtag #MiDunkinEsTuDunkin to enter a chance to win a $100 Dunkin’ Donuts gift card for themselves and a friend. The brand is now supporting their digital Hispanic movement with hashtags such as #MiDunkin and #DunkinLatino.

McDonald’s “Me Encanta”
Back in 2011, McDonald’s introduced its Spanish-language Twitter campaign. @MeEncanta is a Spanglish-based account used to interact with fans about promotional deals through music, sports and education.
McDonald’s Latino movement is currently engaging its online audience with its hashtag #MiMomento. The hashtag, however, has not seemed to catch on yet with many of the posts coming from unrelated tweets.

EMPOWERMENT

Solution

If we want something, we have to go after it and tell our story. To be real, accountable and bold.

I want you to let cimages.me know what topics need to be covered. Let's talk about topics that no one else talks about.

Human interest stories are empowering when shared authentically, with accountability. Humans are empowered by authenticity and inspired by bold vulnerability.

We Dont Need No Stinking... Flip Flops

Issue

President Trump boasts that he hires only the best people, but is anyone trying to explain how his personal hires like Michael, Paul, and Carter, Kelly Anne, Steve, Saun, and Reince are the best people? These choices may continue to hold up Trump's get tired of winning promises. The American voters may be getting sick and tired of the constant flip flops.

As far as promises kept, inaccurate comments, accusations without proof, and the list just keep on growing. Trump has been in the White House for less than 100 days, yet he's already reversed himself on many of his key campaign promises. Trump called China the “world champions” of currency manipulation just 10 days ago. He said NATO was obsolete and has reversed himself yet again.

Trump flips on NATO, China currency. Broken promises? http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/opinion/the-conversation/sd-donald-t...

RIP: THE FORCE

Issue

With our apologies to Trekkies, this is about the "Obstructionists, we will call them "0 Force" those n US Congress which have done nothing for the past 8 years, and may ruin everything the greatest democracy on earth has worked hard to build. This is also for the media, which owns its fair share of the blame by doing next to nothing about preventing the mess we find ourselves in.

Its time to educate the public about "0 Force", which translates to America inaction. Future generations will condemn us for inaction. US citizens should register to vote and use #VoterRegistrationDay on social media to spread the word. http://cimages.me/content/register-vote-0

Start by cleaning House and Senate obstructionists. These are the culprits who have been trying to destroy the administration that our great nation voted for twice. It's not just about taking the White House, but it is also about changing Congressional leadership, which has been taking us in the wrong direction.

The media carry the blame for covering his antics and propping up The Donald. The media which gives him the platform to spew fear. Also, it's the GOP leadership which supported him and if they are not removed from powerful positions they will continue a path to the destruction of democracy.This is a clear explanation for increased foreign influence by corrupt nations and organizations.

Hispanic or Latino?

Issue

They are multilingual but Hispanics may not identify with being Latino, not the same way in reverse.

Latinos I know have no problem being identified as Hispanics, but that is not always the case in reverse. Latinos refers to geography and Hispanics to the language, try explaining that to a Hispanic and insist they are Latinos.

US now has more Spanish speakers than Spain and the second most in the world, according to a recent study.

Wall of Words

Issue

President Trump has sparked a war of words over his signed executive orders mandating the construction of the wall and a mandate for internal immigration enforcement while punishing sanctuary cities.

The Mexican president has officially rebuffed president Trump over his border wall executive order and in an increasing wall of words over his insistence on a billion dollar boondoggle, President Trump is vowing to also crack down on hundreds of US cities which protect undocumented immigrants.

Cyber Theft Protection

Issue

This is expected to become Cyber Week as shoppers are extending the retail frenzy to include Thanksgiving week, but beware of identity thieves who are gearing up for their busy holiday season.

The following are some of the best ways to protect yourself from Better Business Bureau.

Lots of websites pop up around this time of year, offering deals you won’t find in the stores. The BBB suggests looking into the website to make sure you’re not falling into a scam. Some things to look out for:

Do they have a phone number and a physical address?

The Right to Remain Silent

Issue

This was never meant for members of Congress, who are no longer doing their jobs. More about that later.

It is designed to offer equal justice under the law. As US celebrates the 50th anniversary on June 13, it’s easy to forget the origin and purpose.

Miranda was the culmination of 30 years of Supreme Court cases that were designed to protect criminal suspects from abuse in police interrogations. The earliest of these decisions prohibited violence and torture.
