The Democratic National Committee will hold events across the country during the summer to engage and attract more voters who have disdain for President Donald Trump, The Hill reported. 

"There has been an explosion of activism and energy after the election of Donald Trump, and we need to turn this moment into a movement," DNC Chairman Tom Perez said in a statement about the DNC's "Resistance Summer."

"As the Democratic Party, it is our role to support this activism and energy, and convert it into electoral wins up-and-down the ballot by making sure state parties have the tools and resources they need to succeed."

Many protests have been held since Trump took office. The Women's March on Washington in January drew more than 1 million protestors who vowed to resist Trump. In April, protestors showed up in the thousands at the March for Science to rally against Trump's threats of budget cuts to agencies funding the work of scientists. A March protest drew at least 77 demonstrations against the GOP healthcare bill. 

"We have never had a better opportunity to win up-and-down the ballot, but showing up is not enough," DNC deputy chairman Keith Ellison said in a statement. "We have to organize, knock on doors, and motivate voters to the polls. Only then can we deliver what hardworking American families need," he added.
