    There were many methods of resistance facing children's rights. Organizations like the National Child Labor Committe in 1904 and the National Consumers' League were organizations that shared goals of challenging child labor. These organizations also made anti-sweatshop campaigns. They strived to provide free education programs for all children. There were also many strikes like the Newspaper Boys' strike in July of 1899. In this strike, newspaper companies decided to raise their price. This strike was led by Kid Blink. One important leader that took action was Mother Jones and the Children's Crusade. Mother Jones went to Pennslyvania to help 16,000 children go on strike. Other important leaders were the New England Association of Farmers, Mechanics and Other Working Men. They quoted " Children should not be allowed to labor in the factories from moning till night, without any time for healthy recreation and mental culture." A related primary source is the Children's Charter Government Document of 1930, U.S, Children's Bureau Files, National Archives, College Park, Maryland. This primary source taked about the health of children and their protection. These methods of resistance were all successful because they changed the public opinion of child labor in 1938. People began to feel that children belonged in school, instead of at work. This time, the supreme court agreed to ban child labor.
