In our previous happy half-hour gatherings ASEM designers shared recent work, we discussed how the format of our future meetings should be (co-working days still replaced by Happy Half-Hour days on Zoom for now), and Michael Bergland-Riese shared the work around the Husker Pride initiative duringLincoln's first Star City Pride parade on June 19. He also shared a link to purchase Husker Pride t-shirts. We hope you will join us for the next Happy Half-Hour day.
