Abstract

This Introduction discusses the current political climate following the presidential inauguration of Donald J. Trump, with a focus on Trump’s first 100 days in office and what his actions entail for animal advocates as well as for the field of animal law. The Introduction approaches the Trump presidency through a historical and practical lens, then scrutinizes the Trump administration’s actions through its first 100 days. Following this analysis, the Introduction turns to the considerable number of voices that have risen in response to the President’s initiatives and to those of his party. This Introduction concludes by emphasizing the need for diligence and by proposing avenues for animal advocates to continue fostering change.

Keywords: animal law, animal rights
