Cynthia Deitle has devoted her career to civil rights enforcement and outreach. She is a lawyer, a former FBI Special Agent and a former Civil Rights Chief for the FBI. Currently, Deitle works as the Program and Operations Director for the Matthew Shepard Foundation, a group devoted to advocacy and education on issues of tolerance. Matthew Shepard was the victim of one of the most notorious hate crimes in the history of our nation. As a student at University of Wyoming he was brutally beaten and then tied to a fence and left to die, because he was gay.
Cynthia trains law enforcement agencies and communities across the country about how to recognize and enforce the federal hate crime laws. Her message is one of tolerance, diversity, education and collaboration.
Deitle received her Bachelor of Arts degree from The Ohio State University and her Juris Doctor degree from New England Law Boston. She earned a Master of Laws degree in Criminal Law from New York University School of Law and a Master of Laws degree in Constitutional Law from the George Washington University National Law Center. Deitle has published several law review articles on the right to bear arms under the Second Amendment and the use of excessive force by police in the context of the civil rights laws.
