Democrats continue to fight Republican-led redistricting efforts, and a new group, Protect Voters Now! wants to direct funds to court challenges already in place, according to a Tuesday press release.

The new group hopes to provide better funding and assistance to redistricting challenges currently underway in Michigan, New Hampshire, Colorado, Florida, Nevada, and New Mexico.

“(Protect Voters Now!) will leverage our tremendous assets on the ground in the states by combining legislative advocacy, communications, lobbying, grassroots organizing, litigation strategy and district-level targeting to bring the full force of our progressive campaign coalition to fights for the right to vote,” the release said.

“Protect Voters Now! provides enhanced legislative advocacy, lobbying and organizing in these six states, positioning America Votes as the central voter protection watchdog during the 2017 legislative sessions and beyond.”

The group plans on increased lobbying efforts in order to block voter ID laws, as well as organizing a grassroots campaigns devoted to making legislators publicly accountable.
