Since 1999, the League of Women Voters of Lawrence-Douglas County has honored a fellow citizen with the Helen Fluker Open and Accessible Government Award. The award is given in honor of the late Helen Fluker, who was a long-time League member serving on its board and twice as its president. Her career included working for Department of Army and the Department of State. In 2019, Sonja Czarnecki was honored at a luncheon in Lawrence on Sunday, March 24.
