What do you mean? We see Jean speaking at the Congress against the registration act while Charles attended, so he was fighting for mutant rights in a political, non-violent way, just like MLK.
The problem is, the films never put enough focus on Charles and his
side of the story - i.e, his quiet struggle for mutant rights and human/mutant peaceful coexistence. Maybe because it's not cool enough these days.
