RICHMOND, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Environmental Foundation is launching an online fundraising campaign for a documentary about the group’s founder, Craig Williams.

Twenty-five years ago Williams helped organize a grassroots coalition with an aim toward safe disposal of the deadly chemical weapons stored at the Blue Grass Army Depot. Known as the Chemical Weapons Working Group, it has since helped pass federal legislation that ultimately forced the government to find a safer disposal method for weapons stored at four sites around the U.S.

Williams won the Goldman Environmental Prize in 2006.

The documentary is titled “NERVE,” and will be directed by Kentucky filmmaker Ben Evans.

The online fundraiser is being hosted by Indiegogo.com.
