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.

Hands off Syria

When: Sunday, April 15, at 2 p.m.

Where: Rally at Herald Square and march to Trump Tower, 725 5th Ave., Manhattan

"The time is now to return to the street to make the voices for peace heard. Under threats from expanding wars, the threat of nuclear war on the Korean peninsula, the recently expanded bipartisan military budget, the appointments of Mike Pompeo and John Bolton – two war hawks – to the Trump administration and increasing attacks on the living standards of the American people, the American anti-war movement is experiencing a massive revival and resurgence. The movement has united on a call for marches and rallies in regional centers around the country."

People's Tax Day Action Festival

When: Tuesday, April 17, at 5 p.m.

Where: Foley Square, Manhattan

"This People's Tax Day Action Festival is the culmination of Tax March's tour across the country to repeal the Trump tax scam. We'll be engaging in fun and creative activities to draw attention to the human cost of the tax cuts for the rich passed by Trump and the GOP as well as organizing in flippable red districts to turn Congress from red to blue. Come and connect with groups that are focusing on canvassing, door knocking, voter registration, phone banking, letter writing, and texting in these flippable so-called purple districts.

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."
