IMO A

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

List
<to convene> a White House conference
<to encourage> Congress to appropriate ....
<to establish> networks of..

The verbs have to be parallel

B. convening a White House conference, to encourage Congress to appropriate more money for schools and for establishing networks of black mentors >> not parallel
C. convening a White House conference, encouraging Congress to appropriate more money for schools and to establish networks of black mentors >> not parallel
D. the convening a White House conference, encouraging Congress to appropriate more money for schools and establishing networks of black mentors

Only A and E are parallel:

A. convening a White House conference, encouraging Congress to appropriate more money for schools and establishing networks of black mentors
E. for convening a White House conference, for encouraging Congress to appropriate more money for schools and establishing networks of black mentors


I will go with A, since per my info, urge does not need for.

urge someone to do something == to try to get someone to do something.
Ex. I urge you to give skiing a try.
