We show that if a smooth multiplicative subbundle $S\subseteq TG$ on a groupoid $G⇉P$ is involutive and satisfies completeness conditions, then its leaf space $G/S$ inherits a groupoid structure over the space of leaves of $TP\cap S$ in $P$.
As an application, a special class of Dirac groupoids is shown to project by forward Dirac maps to Poisson groupoids.
