The Education Town Hall with Thomas Byrd is the premiere Live Wire show on We Act Radio, broadcasting from Historic Anacostia in Washington DC. It facilitates effective, community-supported approaches to education — in DC and beyond — and fosters strategic, transformational actions.

Host Thomas K Byrd is a product of DC Public Schools and a long-time education advocate in the District of Columbia.
