The progressive group that emerged from President Obama’s former campaign will formally launch a partnership with a redistricting group that Obama has championed since leaving office.

Organizing For Action (OFA) will officially partner with the National Democratic Redistricting Committee (NDRC), led by Obama’s former Attorney General Eric Holder, starting on Monday, according to an OFA release.
