Help raise awareness of this terrible Child Abuse
Parental alienation consists of one or more of a group of behaviors that are damaging to children's mental and emotional well-being, and often involves interference with the relationship between children and either or both of their parents. These behaviors can most often accompany separations and divorces, and divorce-like situations, such as children born out of wedlock, but also can be evidenced within high conflict marriages.
With awareness of the problem comes education, and with education, comes the power to stop most of the abuse of young, impressionable, easily manipulated children, and to help repair many of the damaged family relationships. Our primary role is to spread that needed awareness, and we would like your help to get it done.
How to RAISE Awareness in your Local Area:
Every April 25th should be known as "PAAD"
There will usually be a proclamation procedure on the Governor's website, or, if not, simply call the Governor's office, and ask to speak to the proclamations person to learn the procedures. Even if there is information on the website, it's a good idea to go ahead and contact your Governor's office and speak to a real live person. Exchange names, and ask about their proclamation procedures.
- Each State may have more than one PAAO-US affiliate working towards the goal.
Inquire as to approximate time for the proclamation process.
About half way through the process, contact your Governor's office again, to inquire about the status of the proclamation and to answer any further questions.
We ask that you use the included proclamation and petition wording, as it has been found to be the most effective, unless your Governor's proclamation procedure requires something special.
If your Governor issues a Proclamation for April 25th, we also ask that you forward it (or a copy) to PAAO-US. We, in turn, will issue a press release, with a thank you to your Governor.
