Manzanares, known affectionately as Miss Myrna was an author, storyteller, and cultural ambassador, who also lent her voice to advocacy for a number of causes including women’s rights, the protection of young girls, and substance abuse prevention.

She was also a part of the national response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic, having served as chair of the National AIDS Task Force and president of the Addiction Alert Rehabilitation Center.
