Plenum Constellation is a peer support network of neighborhood-based cultural leaders.

Core beliefs and principles of action

  • Respect for the reality of other people’s lives: their paradigms, priorities, identities, and actions.
  • The defense of ordinary life: protecting and prioritizing the dignity of everyday activities and freedoms over any ideological objectives, grand plans, or -isms.
  • Restoring the ‘landscape’ of equality: engaging in current efforts in a manner that redresses deeper inequalities.
