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.

Justice Sessions

Issue

US Senator Jeff Sessions has moved one big step closer to the Justice Department. Is it one larger step away from voting rights? His voting rights history, which the Leadership Conference described as a record of hostility has over the course of 30 years, shown a skepticism toward the Voting Rights Act while being quick to inflame concerns over alleged election fraud.

PR Humanitarian Crisis

Issue

While Americans in Puerto Rico continue their two-week-old nightmare and wait for a real USA lifeline to their growing nightmare, those victims and journalists say thanks, to all public safety officials and first responders who are tirelessly working hard to save lives, but why does POTUS keep Tweeting statements and accusations without proof and then appears to be enjoying another weekend at his posh NJ golf course? https://dearmrpresident.org/ #USA http://town-hall.doseofnews.com #POTUS http://politics.doseofnews.com/#TABA

#TRUMPANIC

Idea

With a GOP majority in The US House of Representatives, as well as in The US Senate, why have there been no campaign promises kept? Whatever happened to getting tired of winning and I'll make great deals?

Why can't he point to one legislative accomplishment, but instead he has undertaken an unprecedented series of regulatory rollbacks, executive orders, and enforcement changes as well as guidelines by rewriting and inventing rules for industries ranging from entertainment to sports, including issues from sexual assault to anti-discrimination protections?
