Defeat the Label, Raising the Bar

Defeat The Label is a 501(c)3 organization that creates critical awareness of bullying issues among students of all ages, empowering them with the skills and aptitudes to defeat the label. The non-profit organized a social event at Dick O’Dow's in Birmingham which featured judicial guest bartenders, including Supreme Court Justice Brian Zahra, Supreme Court Justice Richard Bernstein, Hon. Michael Riordan, Hon. Shalina Kumar, Hon. Victoria Valentine and Hon. Jake Cunningham. Funds raised will support Defeat The Label's in school anti-bullying programs.


If you would like your future event considered for coverage, you can email Nichols at or if you need to speak with her, phone 248.515.6105.
