This webinar will trace the organizing strategy and tactics for the 2017 Birmingham movement to elect Randall Woodfin, will analyze exactly how the movement was able to create leverage for change, and discuss recent developments with the Woodfin administration and opportunities for change.

 

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.
