More than a year after President Donald Trump took office, New Yorkers who oppose the president's policies and rhetoric aren't showing any signs of slowing their resistance.

Demonstrations against the Trump administration since his election have come in all shapes and sizes: protests, rallies and marches, sit-ins, die-ins and banners unfurled in the Trump Tower lobby.

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

Protests were also held during the three times Trump has returned to the city since taking office. In September, 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 on social media.

Student walk-out and rally for gun control

When: Friday, April 20, at noon

Where: Washington Square Park

"NYC Says Enough, an organization created by NYC youth after the national March 14th walkout, is calling on students and adult allies in NYC to join us on the 19th anniversary of the Columbine Massacre to walkout out of their schools at 12:00 PM, for the entire day, to protest Congress’s inaction on gun control legislation."

Gays Against Guns protest at David Koch's residence

When: Friday, April 20, at 6 p.m.

Where: Outside 740 Park Ave.

"In support of the National School Walkout, Gays Against Guns will follow the NRA’s dark money to David Koch’s doorstep. The protest calls Koch to account for his role in the epidemic of gun violence that leaves one child in the US dead or wounded every hour. At the action, a group of veiled 'Human Beings' will silently represent individuals killed by guns. Protestors will call out Koch’s support of gun extremists to his neighbors."

March For Our Future

When: Sunday, April 22, at noon

Where: United Nations Headquarters, Manhattan

"Donald Trump is the president of the United States, but he refuses to lead. His decision to pull out of the Paris climate agreement undermines the commitment by nearly 200 countries to work together in order to save our planet and those who inhabit it. More so than ever before, it is incumbent upon all of us to answer the global call to action by creating and sustaining positive impact in our own communities. Join us as we stand united with the rest of the world and March For Our Future in NYC and in cities across the globe. We will not only celebrate the impact we've made in response to President Trump's withdrawal, but collectively build a movement that accelerates the impact spearheaded by environmental leaders and organizations on the front lines of this existential threat."

The Earth is Not For Sale

When: Sunday, April 22, at 1 p.m.

Where: American Museum of Natural History, 200 Central Park West, Manhattan

"Join Revolting Lesbians on Earth Day to tell the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) that the Earth is not for sale. Rebekah Mercer has bought her way into the White House — and onto the Board of Trustees of the AMNH. At the same time, she gives millions to organizations promoting climate change denial ($42.6m from 2009-2015). One of these organizations, the Heartland Institute, claims responsibility for convincing Trump that climate change isn't real. 

"Mercer money is destroying our democracy and our planet. Nobody voted for her and she has no place on the board of a science museum. We will continue to revolt against Rebekah Mercer's position on the board until she is removed or resigns."
