Nearly two years after President Donald Trump's election, New Yorkers who oppose his policies and rhetoric continue to show their resistance.

Demonstrations against the Trump administration have come in all shapes and sizes: protests, rallies and marches, sit-ins, die-ins and banners unfurled at the Statue of Liberty.

Although Trump Tower has been a favorite of protesters, demonstrations have taken place across the city, including at Trump International Hotel and TowerStonewall National MonumentBattery ParkTompkins Square ParkWashington Square ParkTimes Square and outside Kennedy Airport, where some travelers were detained when Trump's original travel ban went into effect in January 2017.

This summer, New Yorkers took to the streets to express outrage over the Trump administration's since-rescinded immigrant family separation policy. Some continue to call for the abolishment of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, which carries out many the president's immigration policies.

Protests were also held during the three times Trump has returned to the city since taking office. In September 2017, three congressional Democrats and then-City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito were arrested during a DACA rally outside Trump Tower.

Here’s a look at other demonstrations and protests planned in the city — and what their organizers say about the events.

Protest Donald J. Trump’s NYC Visit 

When: Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 5 p.m.

Where: Trump International Hotel and Tower New York-Central Park, Manhattan 

“Join Rise and Resist to protest Trump’s NYC visit. Donald Trump is not above the law. Brett Kavanaugh is not above the law. Donald Jr. and Jared are not above the law. Neither are Paul Manafort, Michael Cohen, Michael Flynn, Rick Gates or George Papadopoulos. Join us as we call out the corruption, hypocrisy, and immorality of this President and his administration. Bring signs, noisemakers, and friends.”

Impeachment Parade with Baby Trump Balloon!

When: Saturday, Sept. 29, at noon

Where: Grand Army Plaza, Manhattan

"The event will feature the Baby Trump Balloon, which Trump said made him feel 'unwelcome' in the UK. We think it's time he started to feel unwelcome in the US too. We are holding this parade to kick off mass mobilization to impeach Trump and remove his administration from power. Enough is enough: the high crimes of the Trump Administration - from separating families, stoking racism and engaging in corruption — call for real action from every American."
