Following yesterday's deadline for submissions in Australia's marriage survey, the United States Studies Centre (USSC) at the University of Sydney will release exclusive polling data on attitudes to same-sex marriage in Australia and the United States at an event this Thursday evening.

Conducted in partnership with YouGov, the polling of thousands of Australians and Americans (undertaken in the past few weeks) compares attitudes to same-sex marriage and concerns about religious freedoms in both countries.

As the US Supreme Court prepares to hear a case that weighs equal rights with religious liberty, and Australia debates the need for religious protections should there be a successful 'Yes' vote, USSC CEO Professor Simon Jackman will unpack the data and guide discussion at Thursday's event. He'll look at the possible outcomes of the postal survey, the efficacy of the campaign tactics used, and what the US experience tells us about what to expect in Australia.

Where: Case Study Lecture Theatre 1060, Abercrombie Building, corner Abercrombie and Codrington Streets, Darlington, The University of Sydney
When: Thursday, 9 November 2017, 6pm-7.30pm
