In October of 2017, the people of Birmingham elected Randall Woodfin mayor by a landslide. This historic election was the result of many factors, but a big part was grassroots support from movement organizations. The movement in Birmingham weakened the incumbent, William Bell, by attacking him on the Violence Reduction Initiative, a militarization of the police force, and gentrification. Woodfin reached out to these movements and gained their support during the campaign and as a result was elected mayor.
