What is Iconico?

Founded in 2016, Iconico has worked with organizations and communities of all sizes to incubate innovative campaigns and organizations that work to build power in low-income and communities of color.

Why do we think this project is important? 

Since Iconico was founded, its focus has been to build sustainable capacity in advocacy organizations in Arizona, and beyond, as well as long-term solutions for issues affecting communities. In the last five years, Iconico has incubated some of the most critical organizations in the building of durable progressive political infrastructure with BIPOC communities in AZ. Since then, they have identified a new gap that goes beyond the political landscape, and it presents a unique opportunity to start a conversation and a plan of action for the coming changes of America’s desert lands.

The world is constantly changing, and now more than ever we see rapid environmental changes in communities across the globe, especially those most impacted by heat, water scarcity, and migration. To meet this challenge, and continue building resilience within our communities, particularly with those most impacted by social inequities, Iconico is developing a climate adaptation project called Rumbo. Democracy Fund Voice’s support of this work will help Iconico assess the best places to add value in an area that needs capacity and focus.

How is Democracy Fund Voice supporting Iconico? 

In 2023, Democracy Fund Voice approved a one-year grant of $50,000 to Iconico, LLC, to support their Rumbo project.
