The Zonta Club of Warwick Inc held multiple events during the 16 Days of Activism. Club members provided help to Warwick Safe Haven Inc, their local domestic violence assistance group. There they catered and gave general assistance at an information night. Additionally, they provided a screening of a film about Rosie Barrie, Australian of the Year, and domestic violence issues.

The club also hosted a breakfast to fund raise and advocate against domestic violence in their community. Keynote speakers included police officers and a White Ribbon advocate. Over 150 people attended from multiple organizations and they networked between groups for further action. Attendees were challenged to report all violence when observed.

Lastly, on 10 December, the club collaborated with the Warwick Peace Project and Warwick Safe Haven to hold a vigil and a march from town hall to Leslie Park, advocating against domestic violence. The CEO of the council, councilors, police officers and members of the community all attended the ceremony. A police spokesperson and the CEO of the council addressed the more than 60 people who attended the march.
