I have a conceptual question here .

The report urges convening a White House conference, encouraging Congress to appropriate more money for schools and establishing networks of black mentors

The report-Subject
urges-Verb
convening a White House conference, encouraging Congress to appropriate more money for schools and establishing networks of black mentors-Object.

Wont the construction be better if the object takes a noun form(gerund) .Here the sentence has participle phrases.
Any suggestions . :!:

It will be better if you elaborate what participial phrases are used in the correct form of the sentence?
It would help me to resolve your doubt on this.

The report urges convening a white house conference. : This much is enough to make this part a complete sentence.
Rest of the sentence constitutes what the conference will do. i.e. modifying the conference and best usage will be using two parallel participle phrases.

"encouraging Congress to appropriate more money for schools" + "and" (conjunction) + "establishing networks of black mentors"

You already have definite noun(The report) to act as a subject, why do you want to use a gerund ??
