Religious Freedom Survey

We are conducting a study of religious people’s experience of religious freedom and discrimination, and of their attitudes toward lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender, and other genders and sexualities such as queer (LGBT+).

We are asking for your assistance in distributing this survey. We are distributing the survey through local religious congregations and groups.

If you are willing to assist us, please consider sharing our Facebook page with your group or include the link to our survey and image attached in an email to your members

Alternatively you can reply to this email and we can organise a time to call you to discuss the details.

The survey is for anyone who considers themselves religious, is over 18 years old, and lives in Australia. The survey takes approximately 20 minutes to complete.

The project is being led by Prof Douglas Ezzy from the School of Social Sciences at the University of Tasmania. The research team also includes Professor Simon Rice (Law, University of Sydney), Associate Professor Angela Dwyer (Police Studies, University of Tasmania), Dr Louise Richardson-Self (Philosophy, University of Tasmania), Dr Bronwyn Fielder (Social Sciences, University of Tasmania) and Professor Lori Beaman (Religious Studies, University of Ottawa). It is funded by an Australian Research Council (ARC) grant and has been approved by the Tasmania Social Sciences Human Research Ethics Committee, with Project ID: 23410.

We would be happy to answer any questions. Please respond to Charlotte Jones via this email or phone Douglas Ezzy on (03) 6226 2330. Email is preferred. We can also send you an information sheet outlining more details about the study. There is no obligation to participate or assist us.
