Two Women Who Met As Ferguson Protesters Get Married

Alexis Templeton and Brittany Ferrell first met while demonstrating in Ferguson, Missouri, following the death of unarmed Michael Brown and a grand jury's subsequent decision to not indict the police officer who shot him.

The two activists were married Tuesday at St. Louis City Hall — months after meeting while demonstrating in Ferguson.

Both Templeton and Ferrell are prominently involved in Millenial Activists United, a youth-led organization that focuses on "educating and empowering" communities.
