Chemical Weapons

Chemical Weapons Working Group 

KEF’s Chemical Weapons Working Group (CWWG) organized to protect citizens from toxic emissions that result from incinerating chemical weapons. For years, the CWWG pushed state and federal leaders to end dangerous incineration practices and adopt safer methods to dispose of chemical agents. As a result of the CWWG’s efforts, Kentucky has implemented a plan to dispose of its chemical weapons (stockpiled in Madison County’s Blue Grass Army Depot) in a safer, more responsible manner. The CWWG continues to hold military, state and federal leaders accountable for ongoing disposal processes.

With your help, KEF has raised over $30,000 to make a documentary about the fight to end chemical weapons incineration.  

May 23rd, 2015- KEF completed a 40-day Indiegogo Campaign, raising over $30,000 for the film NERVE: how a small Kentucky town led the fight to safely dismantle the world’s chemical weapons. The film will be about the life and work of KEF’s founder Craig Williams, and the international grassroots effort to end chemical weapons incineration. NERVE will be directed by activist and filmmaker Ben Evans.

Our goal was to raise $50,000 to complete the film and help raise awareness about the dangers of unsafe toxic waste disposal; however, we feel confident we will still be able to make the film having raised 62% of our budget.
