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 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.

In recent days, New Yorkers have taken to the streets of the city to express outrage over the Trump administration's now-rescinded immigrant family separation policy.

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.

End Family Separation NYC Rally and March

When: Saturday, June 30, at 10 a.m.

Where: Foley Square, Manhattan

"On June 30, New Yorkers will join together with dozens of other cities in a National Day of Action to Fight for Families and to demand that Trump and his administration stop separating kids from their parents! Families belong together, and we need to end this — NOW!"

#FreeOurBabies

When: Saturday, July 7, at noon

Where: Trump Tower, Manhattan

"The current administration is locking up children of undocumented immigrants in modern-day concentration camps, and our government – regardless of party – is all talk as usual. Lots of 'so tragic' and 'think of the children' but no action. So we must take action. 

"We will be protesting this cruelty by protesting in front of Trump Tower on Saturday, July 7 at 12. This gives everyone plenty of time to make signs/banners/etc. Please join us in actually TAKING ACTION and stepping up when our 'leaders' won't."
