The mayors of Clanton and Maplesville understand that child custody arrangements can have a powerful effect on children's lives. The two towns promote Parental Alienation Prevention Week with an official proclamation during the week of April 23 to 29. Leaders from the justice, mental health, and other community institutions are urged to identify and combat problems associated with parental alienation and unfair child custody situations.
In the proclamations made by the mayors, Alabama community and state leaders are called upon to support shared parenting due to the observed benefits to the child. Alabamians of the two towns reserve the entire week for the cause. A special event is also observed April 25. On that day, citizens are urged to blow Bubbles for Love. The Alabama Family Rights Organization says that the bubbles symbolize "the precious nature of childhood and the responsibility to protect our children."
