Stateside: auto insurance changes; social media’s role in protests; Pride during a pandemic

There have been fewer drivers, as well as accidents, on roads in Michigan during the past few months. The state has asked insurance companies to develop a plan to refund overages in car insurance premiums paid during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Today on Stateside, less driving statewide during the COVID-19 pandemic means insurance companies need to distribute refunds. We find out about what this means for drivers, as well as how they’ll be affected by upcoming changes to the state’s no-fault law. Also, a look at how the history of LGBTQ Pride and the Black Lives Matter movement intersect. Plus, social media’s relationship to social change.
