More than two years after President Donald Trump's inauguration, 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.

Protests have also taken place on several occasions 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.

The Trump administration's immigration policies and practices at the United States-Mexico border have sparked another round of protests by New Yorkers.

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