None of you has the courage to stand up for your beliefs.

Why did I use “has”?

When “None of” is followed by an Uncountable Noun (furniture, news, food, information, etc.), the verb is singular.

a. None of the information is worth my attention.

b. None of the food was fit for human consumption.

However, when “None of” is followed by a Countable Noun (movies, newspapers, murders, etc.) the verb may be either singular or plural.

If you want to mean “not a single one”, the verb is singular.

c. None of these movies is worth seeing.

d. None of the murders has been solved.

On the other hand, if you want to mean “all… not”, the verb is plural.

e. None of the newspapers tell the truth.

f. None of the schools were open during lockdown.

Nevertheless, people prefer a singular verb to a plural one in formal situations.
