An initiative of the Kennedy Forum provides state-based resources on parity legislation, regulations, and where can go to get help filing a parity complaint or appeal in your state. Its interactive map is a great resource to compare and review your state’s parity work. Parity Track also has a registry of complaints to track the implementation of the law and is asking that individuals log their complaints and share their stories, so they may be used in continued advocacy.
