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This summer, New Yorkers took to the streets to express outrage over the Trump administration's since-rescinded immigrant family separation policy.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 have also taken place on several occassions when Trump has returned to the city. 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.
