Team Seven is a political action committee incorporated in 1996 by Sandra Little Brown.

In 2010 Curtis Sykes was Team Seven's treasurer. The group reported major contributions from WSK PAC (Waldrep, Stewart and Kendrick) and Jefferson County Voter Education and Registration PAC, and smaller contributions from real estate developer George Barber and District 7 Birmingham Board of Education member Alana Edwards. The group contributed $5,000 that year to Jay Roberson's campaign, with all other expenditures going toward administration and "get out the vote" efforts, including a $180 payment to Brown's t-shirt business.

In 2016 the PAC's ad committee was chaired by Birmingham NAACP president Hezekiah Jackson and Gwendolyn Webb.

Team Seven and the Birmingham NAACP are among the groups lobbying for removal of the Jefferson County Courthouse murals because of their depiction of black slaves.
