'America's Got Talent' host fighting slavery

The host of hit U.S. TV show “America’s Got Talent” is getting behind a new campaign to end modern-day slavery.

Actor-comedian Nick Cannon told CNN he wanted to use his celebrity to encourage others to join the anti-slavery fight.

Seven non-profits formed the End It Movement to fight modern-day slavery all over the world.

End It and Cannon hope people will join the campaign on social media and agree to put an X on their hands as part of the organization’s ‘Shine a light on slavery day’ on April 9.
