From the Document: "On February 5, 2021, I directed the Stand-Down to occur within the following 60 days to address extremism across DoD. While we conduct a detailed review of what we learned, there are immediate actions that our subject matter experts here in the Department have identified as critical initial steps. To that end, I am directing several immediate actions and the establishment of the Countering Extremism Working Group (CEWG) as we continue to address this issue proactively."
