NSW Premier Barry O'Farrell has established a parliamentary inquiry to examine state-based same-sex marriage.

The inquiry follows the announcement last year that a cross-party group of state MPs plan to introduce state-based same-sex marriage legislation in the NSW parliament.

If you are a NSW resident, we encourage you to join in ACL's 'Make a Stand' campaign by lodging a submission to parliament and ask them to protect marriage from redefinition.

Submissions are due by 1st March 2013.

You can lodge your submission online here.

Please visit ACL's campaign page for more information on what to include in your submission.
