Unpaid interns in Michigan are not protected from sexual harassment in the workplace. 

Michigan State University student Matt Marks wants to change that. He's a senior in the university's James Madison College, and the head of a group called Michigan Equal Protections for Interns Coalition, or Mi-EPIC. 

He joined us on Stateside to talk about his inspiration for getting involved, and the stories of the interns behind the movement. 

Listen to the full interview above.
