Iconico LLC is a consulting firm that helps build advocacy capacity in communities. We partner with organizations to develop public engagement campaigns that vary from grassroots community organizing and mobilization, to family and community engagement with school systems. We believe that advocates should continuously improve their organizing craft, execute bolder ideas, learn new tactics to engage and mobilize supporters, and become better managers of people and campaigns.

We are currently looking for a Campaigns Coordinator with project management and at least one cycle of electoral or advocacy campaign experience.
