WASHINGTON, February 14, 2018 – â€‹â€‹One Click Politics, a non-partisan, grassroots advocacy software company announces the launch of their “I Heart Congress” campaign in collaboration with the Grassroots Professional Network. The goal of the campaign is to get interested groups and the general public to send Members of Congress a ”thank you” note for Valentine's Day.
“Congress gets a lot of criticism. We'd like to encourage people to show some love on Valentine's Day by taking a moment to thank Congress and Hill Staffers for their service and sacrifices,” said Chazz Clevinger, CEO of One Click Politics. “We created the website iheartcongress.com so that citizens can quickly be matched with their legislators in order to send a quick email, Twitter or Facebook post of appreciation in a matter of seconds,” Clevinger continued.
According to Life in Congress: The Member Perspective, a 2013 study by the Congressional Management Foundation and The Society for Human Resource Management, Members of Congress work 59-70 hours per week, “endure unequaled public scrutiny and criticism, and sacrifice family time to fulfill work responsibilities.”

“As citizens, we can sometimes disagree with the way Congress votes on key policy issues, but there is a lot that goes into being an elected official,” states Eric Storey, Executive Director of the Grassroots Professional Network in Washington, D.C. “I've seen the impact a few dedicated legislators can make first-hand, so I proudly join One Click Politics in their effort to show gratitude to legislators,” Storey concluded.
