What's in a name? The conventional wisdom on the origin of the word "lobbyist" goes back to the 1870s when President Grant would retreat to the Willard Hotel from the White House and those wanting to talk with him would wait in the lobby.

Growing up as a first-generation Colombiana in the United States during the 1980s, the references in popular culture that depicted what it meant to be Latino in this country were limited. It was mostly a two-dimensional Que Pasa U.S.A representation for many of us who were trying to really understand the quirks and nuances of our ever-evolving cultural mash-up. But we’ve certainly come a long way, as HBO’s Latino List: Volume Two clearly demonstrates.

“Consulting with a Social Conscience” is the motto of D&P Creative Strategies, the D.C. area-based philanthropic and legislative consulting firm co-founded by Catherine Pino (left) and Ingrid Duran (right, pictured with Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor) in 2004.
On June 7, 2008, Ingrid Duran and Catherine Pino, like many women across America, were glued to a television set as then-U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton gave a historic speech supporting her opponent, Barack Obama, in a thrilling and unforgettable primary election. And like most women, they weren’t focused on a "failed candidacy." Rather, the two watched a woman who had profoundly altered and enhanced the role of women in American political life.
Getting a share of the corporate dollar is a concern of all Latino organizations, including nonprofits. The question is often framed in turns of corporate responsibility: Are Latinos getting an equitable amount? But in today’s tough ecomomic climate, philanthropy involves more than just writing a check. If the rules of the game have changed, then what should Latinos know to receive a fair share of this corporate largesse?
The National Hispana Leadership Institute’s (NHLI) Mid-Career Fellowship was the catalyst for launching my business, D&P Creative Strategies, two and a half years ago. NHLI gave me the self-confidence to follow my dream of creating a business that would allow my partner, Catherine, and I to give back to the communities that matter so much to us.
Mention philanthropy, and an image of a primly dressed Manhattan socialite tapping the Rockefellers or the Motts for the latest cause du jour might spring to mind. Philanthropy, though, is changing, and so are its players.
