Newsies isn’t just a Disney show

In 1899, there were over 10,000 homeless boys in the streets of New York City. Many of them survived by selling newspapers.

These newsies, who made 30 cents a day, banned together and called a strike, refusing to distribute the newspapers of William Randolph Hearst and Joseph Pulitzer.

A few individuals with no status, no permission, no authority, no money, no education stood up to the two most powerful men in New York and said enough is enough, follow me.

They changed things.

So, why can’t you?

What did they have that you don’t?

How long do you stand by and let injustice continue?

People have made great change happen with far fewer resources and far less talent and skills than you.

What’s your excuse?

“Bad men need nothing more to compass their ends, than that good men should look on and do nothing.” — John Stuart Mill, 1867
