Chhange Closed January 20, 2020

Chhange is closed on Monday, January 20, 2020 in recognition of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

"My people were brought to America in chains. Your people were driven here to escape the chains fashioned for them in Europe. Our unity is born of our common struggle for centuries, not only to rid ourselves of bondage, but to make oppression of any people by others an impossibility." - Martin Luther King, Jr. (1958)
