I like the name but I can understand what the issues may be. What about 'Advocate for Change' or just 'Advocate' (the verb ad-vo-CATE not the noun AD-vo-cate)- the noun advocate is one translation of paraclete which referred to 'the spirit of truth' in the bible. Since this is the inspiration for advocacy (not just Christian, but particularly Christian). The verb is compelling - do something! say something! Could still have the byline Edmund Rice Advocacy for Change
I also think it has possibilities for campaigns for people to "Add your Voice" -
Having said all that, remember I am just a ring in and should probably just be quiet as I don't really know the process that you've used to come up with ERA for Change.
I love the name ERA - links to change, sense of time - a moment in our history. Shouldn't we be honouring this project's connection to Edmund Rice? Instead of seeing it as exclusive to non-EREA schools, I see it as inclusive of any organisation that has a connection to or understanding of or desire to be 'Edmund Rice-like'. It's brief and simple. There's a beauty in that... I admit when I first opened the website (as I wasn't at your initial meeting on Monday, so have encountered the whole concept just now), it took a couple of seconds to place ERA in context -EREA? ERC? ERI? I can understand EREA baulking at this name but we live in a world of acronyms and we are getting better at dealing with the cross over of meanings etc. I also liked discovering the 'A' aspect of ERA and think it highlights the shift in thinking / the new movement for us to advocacy.
