Examples of of Our Work
D&P represents a broad range of clients and the work that we do for them varies from government relations, community relations, philanthropic advising and public affairs. Below are just a few examples of some projects we've done for our clients.
D&P works with Comcast on a myriad of projects. We ensure their legislative priorities are heard on the Hill and the Administration through direct lobbying, issue advocacy, coalition building, and third party outreach. We help Comcast partner with the LGBT, Latino and Asian communities by creating strategic philanthropic giving plans that are tied to their business objectives. Part of this work includes collaboration with Comcast on the creation of public service announcements (PSAs) to advance awareness of key issues and developments affecting Latinos. Featuring Members of Congress and entertainers, the PSAs have highlighted the work of leading Latino organizations such as the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI), National Council of La Raza (NCLR), National Association of Latino Elected Officials (NALEO) and Mexican American Defense and Education Fund (MALDEF). The PSAs have highlighted CHCI’s leadership education programs for Latino students and professionals, informing the public about the transition to DTV (digital transition), Get Out the Vote campaigns targeting communities of color and PSAs encouraging participation in the 2010 Census.
D&P aided the Girls Scouts in identifying opportunities to increase young Latina participation in their leadership and social development programs. Through the design and implementation of focus groups with young Latinas, D&P collected data on perceptions of the organization and potential access barriers, using the information to formulate recommendations for improving outreach, targeting messaging and ensuring culturally competency in programming.

In support of the foundation’s efforts to expand its work within Latino communities, D&P was enlisted to organize a symposium for top executives to familiarize them with key issues affecting the community from the perspective of leaders working to address poverty, immigration, education and ethnic discrimination. In preparation for the symposium, D&P interviewed experts, researchers and advocates regarding issues relevant to the foundation’s strategic programming framework.
