Birmingham City Council District Two (District 2) is a legislative district of the City of Birmingham from which one representative on the Birmingham City Council and one member of the Birmingham Board of Education are elected. The city was divided into nine districts to preserve minority (white) representation following a court order issued in "Yarbrough et al v. City of Birmingham)" (1989). Prior to then councilors were elected at-large. The district is currently represented by Councilor Kim Rafferty.

District Two covers areas in eastern and southeast Birmingham, including the Overton neighborhood which stretches south into Shelby County.

The district's borders were modified in 2013, ceding some areas north of the Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport to District 4. Following the 2020 U.S. census the district gave up Oak Ridge Park and part of South East Lake to District 5.
