The 1 Less Bully, 1 More Friend practice at Oxon Hill High School in Oxon Hill, Maryland is designed to lesson verbal, emotional, and cyber bullying.  Every Wednesday, a student group wears 1 Less Bully t-shirts and wrist bands. They visit classrooms during the student leadership class to talk with other students about their experiences with bullying. At the end of the presentation or discussion, each student is asked to sign an Anti-Bullying Pledge Card.
