After returning from the Vietnam War, Craig Williams looked forward to some normalcy. But in 1984, when he discovered that the Department of Defense planned to incinerate over 500 tons of toxic nerve gas and other chemical agents stockpiled in his small Kentucky hometown, Williams began the fight of his life.

We are proud to announce that NERVE: The Film won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2016 Environmental Film Festival at Yale University.
Thanks to your help and support, KEF successfully premiered NERVE: The Film to a sold out audience at EKU Center for the Arts. The documentary honors KEF’s 25th anniversary, and the global fight against the incineration of chemical weapons and other hazardous substances. We achieved our goal of creating this film (directed and produced by award-winning filmmaker Ben Evans) to expose audiences to the realities of unsafe and unnecessary toxic substance disposal methods. We hope that highlighting the Chemical Weapons Working Group‘s important work will illustrate how grassroots activism can change everything, and inspire others to fight for environmental justice in their communities.
