An important organization has taken root in North Texas around the issue of mass transit. Earlier this year, Gary Stuard, co-chair of the Dallas County Green Party and Secretary of the Green Party of Texas, along with a group he founded in the area called System Change Not Climate Change (SCNCC), decided to organize opposition to drastic fare hikes proposed by Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART).
Tarrant County transit riders experienced similar fare hikes during the last year. Known as the "T", Fort Worth's version of mass transit implemented a 20% increase in fares, and even higher spikes in certain categories of riders.
On Sunday, August 20, the Tarrant County Green Party sponsored a forum for local residents to learn more about the new immigration enforcement policies that affect their lives and those of their families and neighbors.
A few months ago the local Green Party members determined that the neighborhood known as the city's North Side would become a focus for their service efforts.
