Crossroads Charlotte will present their Know It 2 Work It Civic Summer School throughout August. Three separate classes will seek to educate and inform citizens and grassroots organizers on local and state government, budgeting processes and other topics.

The three classes, offered to the public for free, will be held in the evenings on Monday, Aug. 15 and Thursday, Aug. 18. A final class will be held on Saturday, Aug. 20. The courses will cover the local and state budget process, local census data and strategies and techniques for effective advocacy.
