"Most people hear my name and think I am
Mexican or a Mexican American, or a Hispanic,
Chicano or dozen more names I'd rather not
mention. I call myself an American. But like
every other American, I am an American with
Heritage. My heritage is Mexican and Yaqui-Indian."

Julio Calderon, parent, husband, government employee, journalist and Chicano politico has a long history of working with the national, state and local political systems to improve the standing of the Mexican-American-Latino communities of the State and Nation.

A resident of Sacramento, over the years he has gained considerable political knowledge and understanding of the political system and its relationship to his community and all other minorities. As a Chicano in the 50's and 60's, Calderon struggled alongside other activists to bring change to a society that systematically had excluded Latinos and Mexicans from the social, economic and political arenas and relegated them to second-class status.
