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.

A is correct because there is no error in it ; convening , encouraging and establishing are clearly || ;

C on the other hand is grammatically correct i believe as

Encouraging modifies report and phrase " Congress to appropriate more money for schools and to establish networks of black mentors " seems to be parallel

Can C be correct here
??

Had that been the case, it should have "and" between 'convening' and 'encouraging', but not a comma.
